There are plenty of resources to guide you in choosing Vancouver’s best spots for food, but wine lists? That’s another matter. Thankfully, connoisseurs needn’t look any further than this year’s Vancouver International Wine Festival Wine Program Excellence Awards. Chosen by judges Tom Doughty, Jay Jones, DJ Kearney, Iain Philip, and Treve Ring, Vancouver’s top restaurants were awarded platinum, gold, silver, or bronze awards based on their wine programs. Check out notable Restaurant Awards winners like Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar, or try one of the newer rooms on the scene like Mission, for a safe space to test your wine palate (and, depending, your wallet).
