Gamay is a lesser-known grape variety, but it is gaining popularity in British Columbia for its ability to consistently produce high-quality wines. As more consumers seek out lighter, juicier red wines, Gamay is becoming a popular choice. In the BC climate, Gamay wines are typically light-bodied and low in tannins, with fresh acidity and a silky texture. The wines are known for their flavors of red berry fruit, cinnamon, and minerality. Although Gamay plantings are small in BC compared to other varieties, the grape is gaining recognition for its potential to produce exceptional wines.
