Drink a B.C. wine

There is no better time to drink rosé — a perfect, vinous blend of our national red and white. This was our top rosé winner as judged by the 17 experts in our 2015 Vancouver Magazine International Wine Awards competition, and we know that you will relish it too. Pair with fancy salmon or humble hot dogs. Liberty Wine Merchants, $26.99, libertywinemerchants.com
