38 More Provincial Winemaking Awards!

Posted by Airdrie Store - Pat Morrison - full access, May 18th, 2011 | 0 Comments

We've already announced that Ron of the Northwest Calgary store is Winemaker of the Year 2011 after the Provincial Competition last month.      Also, Pat from the Airdrie store took Best of Show in the White Wine category -- this wonderful wine was a Selection Australian Traminer Riesling blend -- a gorgeous off-dry white.

We garnered 38 more Provincial Awards, thus making our grand total a nicely rounded 500! 

Congrats to:   Ron G ,  Ken G,   Paul S,  Pat M,  Clarence G,  Dave B,  Claudia O,  Gordon S,  Kellie B,  Roy R,  & Phil A !       The Home Vintner Wine Guild is very proud of these achievements, which included 14 Silver Medals!

There have been changes to the National Competition rules, and thus each province is only allowed to enter a certain number of bottles.    Alberta is allowed to enter 30 bottles only, and so The Home Vintner will be entering 21 out of the cutoff of 30 !!    What can you say, but WOW !

On to The Nationals, which takes place in Nova Scotia this year in late August.     Good Luck fellow vintners!
