Awards & Acclaim History

2010 Gold Medal 2014 Northwest Wine Summit

2009 Beppi Crosariol (The Globe and Mail) 
“From an exacting Vancouver Island producer, this gris was made entirely from estate fruit... A classic pinot gris essence of pear comes through well, carried on a texture that’s initially round and smooth, turning attractively chalky and dry on the finish. It would match substantial fish dishes, including salmon.”  88 Points

2009 John Schreiner (John Schreiner on Wine) 
"...begins with spicy aromas and offers a rich palate packed with fruit flavours - pear, peach and apricot."  90 Points

2007 John Schreiner (John Schreiner on Wine)
"A complex white with hints of toast, butterscotch and pears on the nose and on the palate. A skein of minerals is woven through the structure of this dry wine, adding to the complexity. The finish is long."  90 Points
