Welcome, BC wine-lovers.
These are exciting times for BC wine. We make distinctive, award-winning wines in our province - wines that have turned heads around the world. On a global scale our production is tiny (and precious), but somehow great BC wines are becoming harder and harder to buy. New District is a BC wine marketplace that was created to provide a simple solution for both consumers and businesses. We have a tightly focused vision: we want to help people who make great wine in BC connect with wine lovers who want to learn more about it. We’re aware of the growing interest among the enlightened public (that’s you) to sample and support local wines, and New District is here to help you get the information you need.
I’ve been drinking, thinking and writing about BC wine for many years, and when I learned of this compelling project, I knew I had to be a part of it. I was attracted to the ideal of connecting BC wine lovers with the artisan producers who pour heart and soul into the wines they make. Over the years I’ve come to know the unique areas where grapes grow in this province, and appreciate the massive human ambition that’s given us such rich choice in wine. As a long-time wine educator, I’m looking forward to creating content that brings our winelands to life, and the chance to teach and entertain along the way. Our website will evolve month by month with articles, wine notes, winery profiles, as well as food and wine pairing insights.
It’s a great time to be a wine-lover, and I can’t wait to help you discover new wines. At New District we have the ability to introduce you to the wines that intrigue you, using this handsome website where you can search according to variety or producer. There is no better place to learn about wine.
Yours in wine,
Director of Wine
