There is a winemaker in BC who produces very drinkable wines at a ridiculously low price (for BC) - around $10 a bottle. Ok, maybe they aren't the most interesting wines you'll ever drink, but they are well constructed (for the price) and very true to varietal type.

This is the wine you buy for your 20 year old sibling. This is the wine when 20 people come over for a bbq. This is your decent BC table wine. It doesn't try to be more, and does a great job at it. The difference in $10 between this and Monkey Bay is all the difference in the world - but you don't want to spend $20 all the time. The vanilla in this, by-the-way, I'm certain comes from the American oak chips they use.
