Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Canada in the New World Wine category 2017, Winner Best New World Wine Book in the World 2017, Short-listed Taste Canada Food Food Writing Awards 2018, Short-listed
  • Short Description

Finalist for the 2017 Taste Canada Food Food Writing Awards
Winner of a 2017 Gourmand Cookbook Award in English Canada
Finalist for a Gourmand Cookbook Best in World Award

A gorgeous gift-worthy collection of tasting notes and collector’s information on British Columbia’s highest-calibre wines, written by Canada’s most authoritative and prolific wine writer.

British Columbia now has such an array of high-calibre winemakers that John Schreiner has compiled a book showcasing the icon wines from BC’s best wineries. An icon wine is the very best wine that a producer can make, and the prestige of an icon wine cascades across a winery’s entire portfolio.

For each wine profiled, readers will learn the behind-the-scenes story of the winery and winemaker, as well as the history, provenance, and inspiration behind each wine. The most recent vintage is listed, along with detailed tasting notes for as many vintages as are available, information on number of cases produced, percentages of varietals in the case of blends, and even the clone number of particular varietals.

The essential guide for any collector of BC wine, this book is also the culmination of research that illuminates John Schreiner’s passion and unique contribution to BC’s wine region.

"BC wine fans love John Schreiner. He's always been there for us. With the explosive growth of BC wines, he has paved the way for our all-important next step: how to choose and cellar the best of those wines, the icons." - Terry David Mulligan, host of Tasting Room Radio, Roundhouse Radio

"Schreiner’s book sorts out the very best." - Anthony Gismondi, Vancouver Sun

"If you want a quick primer on BC's best labels while supporting a Canadian wine treasure, John Schreiner himself, this is it." - Gismondi on Wine

“This is a significant work that clearly proves not only that British Columbia’s wine has come of age, but also that there is a worthy story to tell. This is a book that will look equally good on the coffee table, as it would be wine-stained and well loved near your cellar.” —Culinaire - Culinaire

"This topical 320 page tome perfectly captures the growing global respect for the special wines coming out of British Columbia. . . . The organized notes by trained journalist John Schreiner . . . are always so well researched and eruditely expressed. This adds enormously to the readability and easy reference of his latest admirable work all set out alphabetically by winery name. . . . You need this volume to be informed on this exciting unique wine region that has emerged and you will also enjoy reading it!" —International Wine & Food Society - International Wine and Food Society

Deb McVittie of 32 Books suggests Icon as a must-read the holiday season on CBC's North by Northwest. - North by Northwest

"A highly informative and palate-readying read . . . a great gift for wine lovers, especially those with cellars full of the local stuff." —Scout magazine - Scout

"[In] the U.S. market . . . B.C. wines are mainly represented by Ice Wine. If you want to know what else B.C. has to offer you pretty much have to go to the source. This volume just might be the nudge you need to book that ticket!" —The Wine Economist blog - The Wine Economist blog

"The hard-cover, colour book is a must-have for the British Columbia wine lover or anyone wanting to learn more about this region. Each wine is accompanied by a colour image of the bottle so you can easily identify them on the store shelf. It’s a very well-laid out book." —Wine Adventures blog - Wine Adventures
