We’re living in unprecedented times. We’re avoiding large gatherings and maintaining social distancing. Essentially, we’re confining ourselves in our homes for as many hours of the day as possible. Most of us are doing so willingly for the greater good of our loved ones and communities. And we’re fortunate to live in a time of technology that’s making this social discomfort fairly comfortable. Even our local BC wineries are offering new selections and free shipping to help get us through this chaos. But for whatever discomfort you’re feeling, there’s a happy-hour light at the end of the tunnel. And since we all have some extra time on our hands, we’re turning the mundane decision of picking a wine into a Choose Your Own Wine Adventure: Self-Isolation interactive journey.

For this inaugural edition, we’re focusing on wines to enjoy while self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic. I’ve chosen to link to wines available at BC Liquor Stores, however these wines are readily available in most regions with the help of a google search.

Stay well, Social Sippers!
