Four Medals at National Wine Awards
Each wine award show has its merits. Some focus on and celebrate local, while others cast the net further afield and include international wines as well. We probably consider Canada’s pre-eminent wine awards though, to be the WineAlign National Wine Awards, held each year in June.
While we never want to make wine for award events — there’s been too much of that, ‘thank you’ Cali! — they are a good barometer of where we stand relative to others. (Our general gripe is that even with multiple tastings, it’s still fairly rapid-tasting and rarely leaves time for nuance).
Each year we enter a few of our new bottlings. This year, we were pleased that four of our wines entered picked up medals! It does not mean the world, but it is nice :)
