UBC Okanagan uncorks new Wine Research Centre headquarters

July 07, 2020

The move provides the WRC with a dual-campus presence in Vancouver and the Okanagan, where researchers have developed strong collaborations with the BC wine community. The changes at the WRC will enhance UBC's wine research and education, while supporting and stimulating the provincial economy. Among the WRC's new initiatives are plans for a sensory analysis lab in Kelowna. It will feature research facilities and offer programs for the public to learn about wine tasting, oenology and the local industry.
