CedarCreek Estate Winery was named the Canadian Winery of the Year for the third time at the 2019 InterVin International Wine Awards.

More than 1,100 wines were entered from 15 countries at the InterVin International Wine Awards.

The competition’s judging process is led by some of the most respected wine writers, educators and sommeliers in the country.

“As one of the original eight wineries in the Okanagan Valley, CedarCreek has championed quality winemaking practices and a vineyard-specific focus from the start,” Christopher Waters, head judge of the InterVin International Wine Awards said, in a press release.

“If one were to look for a winery that’s emblematic of the dynamic changes afoot in the Okanagan Valley, CedarCreek’s renewed focus is a great case study.”

CedarCreek is also making its presence known on the world stage with a key win at the Canberra International Riesling Challenge in Australia, the largest and most competitive Riesling competition in the Southern Hemisphere. At this year’s competition, CedarCreek’s 2018 Estate Riesling won the esteemed Wolf Blass.

Trophy for ‘World’s Best Semi-Dry Riesling’, and was awarded a score of 97 points – topping its category and beating out more than 500 Riesling wines entered from nine countries, including  Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, and China.
