Selection & Pricing Data: B.C./U.S.

Competition is good for the consumer but the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch has a monopoly on all wine trade. Pricing aside, this arrangement does not work for a worldly product that spans so many countries and changes with each vintage. We believe that everyone should have the ability to source the greatest wines in the world and there is no good reason why it should cost more in one part of the world versus another.

As a well-respected person in the wine industry often says when speaking about pricing variation "Does it taste 50% better in Vancouver than it does in Seattle?"
