The results from the The Amateur Winemakers of Canada Competition (AWC) held in Nova Scotia are in. We have won 20 awards out of 27 awarded to Alberta, taking 1 Gold, 12 Silver, 5 Bronze and 2 Certificates of Merit. The competition in the whole province of Alberta won the other 7. WOW!
30 bottles of wine from Alberta were allowed and submitted to the 2011 AWC Competition. Our Home Vintner Wine Guild had won 21 awards out of the 30 in the Alberta Amateur Winemakers competition this spring so submitted 21 bottles to the AWC. This was when our own Ron Goodhew had won Alberta Winemaker of the year.
