Can’t decide between a week in wine country or an island getaway this summer? Merge the two trips into one with the help of Island Wineries of British Columbia, a newly released guide to the wines, people and culture of our neighbors to the north. Written in part by Imbibe contributor Adem Tepedelen, this book is part history lesson of the varietals and viticultural landscape of the region; part tour guide complete with suggested wine excursions and part cookbook with wine-pairing recipes from some of the region’s most well-regarded chefs. Traveling with imbibers of other sorts? The book also includes chapters on local meaderies, cider houses, craft brewers and distillers. So start packing the car—the islands of British Columbia are calling! $25, amazon.com
