Riesling has long been grown in British Columbia, but it is only recently that the grape has gained recognition for its quality. From 2006 to 2014, plantings of Riesling in BC increased by 86%, as winemakers began to take the grape more seriously. BC Riesling can be found in a range of styles, from fruity and off-dry to dry and high in acid, with flavors of apples, limes, and minerals. Some producers are even making sweeter, low-alcohol Kabinett-style wines in the German tradition. Many of these wines have the ability to age, with some being cellared for over a decade. The increasing popularity and recognition of BC Riesling is a testament to the grape's potential in the region.
