icewine The complete story John Schreiner

Icewine: The Complete Story, the first comprehensive international book on this dessert wine, was published in November 2001 and was judged “best book on wine history” in English that year in the World Gourmand cookbook and wine book competition.


"John Schreiner jokes that he’s to blame for the B.C. wine industry getting ahead of itself as he serves notice of the province’s products." Chris Steinberg /Globe and Mail

If you have not read his books go back and do so. His 18 books tell us this story "It’s telling of how quickly the British Columbia wine industry has evolved. How dynamic it’s become. It’s moved from utter and complete mediocrity in the early eighties to producing world-class wines," says Schreiner.

Over the years John has been a great support of this website and has provided numerous pieces of information and updates. We thank John for his friendship and kind support.
