British Columbia has some spectacular wine but it’s a secret that few outside the province know about. There’s a long list of wineries worth visiting and some superb wine bars: most, if not all, produce their own wines in-house or sell local wines. Here’s our guide to the best spots to enjoy a glass of vino in Vancouver.

Adjacent to the Moda Hotel Lobby, this wine and cocktail bar is great place to relax with a glass of wine and get work done during the day, or to enjoy an after work cocktail. Try a reasonably priced wine flight like the Italian Tourist or the New Empire.

Bellaggio Wine Bar

With its Italian and European flair and extensive drink menu, Bellaggio Wine Bar has become a destination restaurant and wine bar in Vancouver. Enjoy a glass or bottle of one of their local or worldwide wines on their patio, which boasts breathtaking harbor and mountain views. Pair your wine with a pizza: think everything from a capricciosa (ham, mushrooms, and artichokes) to pollo brie (chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, and brie cheese).
