“This is the 16th anniversary of the Awards. And the stats on this year’s judging are record-breaking. Over 1,500 wines were entered from 230 wineries, a testament to the growing number of wineries in the country, and faith in these awards as being a way to showcase and benchmark new wines.
We handed out a record number of awards as well – 16 Platinum, 103 Gold, 454 Silver and 190 Bronze. Given that a bronze must have been scored 87 points by a panel of a minimum of three judges, we have hundreds of wines in Canada that our experts felt were ‘very good’ or better. That should instill some confidence among consumers.” – WineAlign.com
