VINELAND, Ont. — Tawse Winery has been named Canadian Winery of the year by WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada.
The annual competition recognizes the best in Canadian wines as well as the top performing wineries in the nation’s industry. This is the fourth time the winery has received this honour in the last seven years.
“With more than 230 wineries entering the competition it really is overwhelming to be recognized as number one,” says proprietor Moray Tawse “This success would not be possible without the passion and hard work of our dedicated winery team. We are extremely proud of this achievement and truly believe that this honour belongs not only to us, but to all of those in our industry who work hard each year to raise the bar in Canadian wines.”
“Our commitment to producing expressive wines really begins in the vineyard,” adds Paul Pender, director of Viticulture and Winemaking. “The health of our vines is paramount in every decision that we make. We truly believe that the way we’re farming allows us to produce fruit of the highest quality, at the same time giving back to the soil for future harvests.”
Tawse Winery was previously awarded Winery of the Year in three consecutive years; 2010, 2011 and 2012.
