British Columbia’s wineries are crafting world-class products. In celebration of this hard-earned triumph, John Schreiner has, for the first time in the history of BC’s wine industry, selected the highest-calibre wines—the icons—from 100 of BC’s most accomplished wineries, and has gathered his observations in a compendium that illuminates his passion and unique contribution to BC’s wine region.
Featuring vertical tasting notes in which Schreiner compares a variety of vintages of one signature wine, detailed histories and stories from these outstanding producers, and more than 45 full-colour images by Christopher K. Stenburg showcasing the unparalleled beauty of BC’s wine country, Icon is a must-have book for any serious collector of BC wine.
John Schreiner is a prolific and seasoned wine writer. Beginning with regular wine columns in the Financial Post and the Vancouver Sun in 1974, he published his first book, The World of Canadian Wines, in 1984 and has since written fourteen books on Canada’s and British Columbia’s wines and wine culture. He is a celebrated member of both national and regional wine communities across Canada, and has judged in wine competitions in North America and abroad. He lives in Vancouver, where he maintains his own expansive wine collection.
