2013 Atlantic Canada Wine Awards – Medals

2013 Atlantic Canada Wine Awards - Medals

silvermedalCongratulations to eight wineries from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick who received medals at the 5th annual Atlantic Canadian Wine Awards. Presented by the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers Atlantic Chapter (CAPS-AC) the awards recognize excellence in wines from the four Atlantic Provinces.

“With seventy eight wines from twelve Wineries competing in this year’s event, judges were challenged by another excellent showing.” says Mark DeWolf, president of CAPS-AC. “Some newcomers to the scene showed off their wine making abilities very well, and demonstrated how they continue to enhance the increasing variety of great wines being produced in our region.”

“These awards recognize the hard work, dedication and expertise of the wineries and their winemakers. Year over year, the quality of Atlantic Canadian wine continues to improve, resulting in increasingly greater recognition in Atlantic Canada, the country and the world”, says DeWolf.

The wine competition was conducted by a judging panel comprised of wine professionals who are members of CAPS-AC and guest experts from throughout the Atlantic region. The wines are tasted blind and awards are presented annually. The awards are offered to showcase some of the the best wine Atlantic Canada has to offer and to heighten the profile of an expanding local industry.
