2012 Lt. Governor's Wine Awards

The 2012 Lieutenant Governor's Awards for Excellence in British Columbia Wine were just awarded and to toast this year's batch of wining wineries and wines, Boo and I opened a winner from 2008.  This year, eleven wines were awarded the now prestigious award - with Painted Rock Estate winning two awards for the 2009 Syrah and 2009 Red Icon.  The other winning wineries saw some new and repeat winners.  They are:  Eau Vivre, Gold Hill, Hester Creek, Jackson-Triggs, laughing Stock, Poplar Grove, Road 13, Ruby Blues and Thornhaven Estate.

1189.  2006 Golden Mile Cellars - Black Arts Syrah (VQA Okanagan Valley)

As a quick side note, those in the know will recognize that Golden Mile Cellars is now called Road 13.  So, opening the Golden Mile tonight is likely all the more appropriate.
