Welcome to the UBC Wine Research Centre


The UBC Wine Research Centre (WRC) is a unique research and education centre that supports the development of a sustainable Canadian grape and wine industry through world-class research, excellence in wine education, applied solutions and knowledge transfer.

Our evolution since 1999 has relied on an interdisciplinary philosophy that brings together researchers from across both UBC campuses in Vancouver and the Okanagan with expertise in a range of subjects including enology, viticulture, management, and social sciences.
