Discover the Wines of Canada
Canada should be proud of its recent wine history. We started getting serious about vitis vinifera in the 1970s. BC and Ontario started growing wine grapes and producing wines. Nova Scotia and Quebec have followed, and I heard, but have not seen, that there are also wines being produced in New Brunswick. Our climate since the 1970s has warmed up so we are also able to produce good quality red grapes for wine. For Canada’s 150th birthday, the Vancouver International Wine Festival decided to pick Canada as the theme country for the Festival. Wines from BC, Ontario, and Nova Scotia, showed Vancouverites, as well as visitors from around the world that we have something special to offer with our wines. Below are articles that I wrote about my adventures in the Festival tasting room, seminars and winery dinners. Enjoy.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon.MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master. I met many great wine makers. I love to travel around the world, visiting wine regions and sharing my passion for food & wine with you. Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.
