#2 Small Winery in Canada
Wine Align’s National Wine Awards of Canada (NWAC) are the largest, most respected wine judging competition in the country. This year, the largest in history with over 1,700 wines entered from 242 wineries from across Canada (132 wineries from BC). Their website states:
“The wines were judged over five full days in Wolfville, Nova Scotia by 22 judges from seven provinces. The judges are all well-established wine writers and educators with broad international wine experience. We also had international guest judge Dr. Jamie Goode from the United Kingdom join us for the 4th year in a row.
The wines were all served blind (producer, origin, and price were not revealed) but identified and organized into flights by grape variety or style. The top medalists were tasted in multiple rounds by several different judges. The judges only tasted a limited quantity of wines each day so their palates could stay fresh and focused, and the wines were served in high-quality Zwilling glasses at just the right temperature. All this was to ensure that each wine was treated with the respect it deserves.”
We are so excited and proud to announce that we have been awarded the distinction of being the #2 Small Winery in Canada (wineries producing less than 10,000 cases per year), #12 winery overall in Canada and #6 winery in BC!
In total, we have been awarded 3 GOLD medals, 6 SILVER medals and 3 BRONZE medals for the following wines from our 2015 and 2016 vintages:
2015 Micro Cuvée Pinot Noir
