Right now everyone is going through uncertain times and the BC Wine Industry is no exception. At this point it looks like upcoming new release wine tastings will be either postponed or even cancelled this season. Our favourite wineries, large or small, may be feeling the pinch.
We reached out to the BC wineries that we have promoted in the past, either as Our #FavouriteThings during our winter holiday promotion or for our Celebration! Romance! and Passion! valentine promotions.
The response from our readers for these promotions was positive and so with that encouraging starting point we came up with a plan we call #shiptosip
We are encouraging BC wine lovers to order from their favourite wineries and help support the BC wine industry. The wineries jumped onboard and each winery has a special shipping incentive for online orders.
Each day we will be publishing a feature to let our readers know which BC wines are available now to be shipped right to your door. The shipping offer ranges from winery to winery.
Please join us in supporting BC wineries and looking forward to the return of public wine tasting events and wine touring for all.
As the #ShiptoSip Campaign carries on we have heard from over 50 wineries interested in participating. The link below is updated daily and includes all the wineries we have promoted so far with about two more weeks of winery features left in the campaign as of early April. So be sure to check back often so you don’t miss any of your favourites!
So what’s next in our efforts to support the BC Wine Industry?
We have two campaigns in the works:
#JointheClub which will promote wine membership for all wineries interested in adding more members to their roster.
#LetsGetVirtual which will bring awareness of, and promote, the efforts of the wineries that are offering “virtual” wine tastings, “virtual” wine seminars, “virtual” wine touring, “virtual” wine classes and “virtual” winemaker chats via social media platforms, live apps and websites.
If you would like to be featured on MyVanCity.ca please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, features are complimentary and with appreciation wine samples are accepted for review.
