     The team at SpierHead has some wonderful news to tell!  The 2016 Award Season has been good to us so we thought we would let you know about some of the awards we have received this summer.  We would also like to fill you in on what is happening on the Patio at SpierHead.

National Wine Awards of Canada 2016
     These awards were announced a week ago and out of more than 1500 entries there were 16 platinum medals awarded. We were delighted to learn that 2 of the 16 went to SpierHead pinot noirs: the Pinot Noir Cuvee 2014 and the Pinot Noir GFV Saddle Block 2014. There were no other platinum medals awarded to Pinot Noirs.
SpierHead also received a gold medal (one of only 3 awarded) for our Pinot Gris 2015 and bronze medals for our Chardonnay 2015 and Riesling 2015.
      This strong showing put us in the Top Ten ranking of every category SpierHead was eligible for:

        -  Top Ten BC Wineries: ranked #4
        -  Top Ten Best Performing Small Wineries
            in Canada: ranked #4
 
        -  Top 25 Wineries in Canada: ranked #6


L.A. International Wine Competition
     And just so you know that our wines aren’t well received only in Canada, SpierHead has had great results in L.A.  We have discovered that the Oscars aren’t the only golden awards in Hollywood!  The Cuvee 2014 received a gold medal at this prestigious international competition as did the SpierHead Club Consensus 2014.  This latter wine is the result of our wine club members creating a blend of pinot noir from a variety of barrels during the ‘Wine Club Blending Weekend' that we hold each summer. As a matter of fact, this is the second consecutive gold medal in LA for the Consensus so the pressure is on to achieve a ‘hat trick’ with the Club Consensus 2015.
     Needless to say, we are thrilled with these awards! There are still a few more competitions ahead, so check our website for results or better yet, drop by to see how we are doing!
The Patio at SpierHead
     As some of you may know, our little bistro, the Patio at SpierHead, has been a big success offering artisan pizzas, charcuterie platters and a variety of tasty treats throughout June and July.  The Patio is a perfect place to relax, have a delicious lunch or snack and of course, enjoy some of our award winning wines.  The Patio will be open the rest of the summer from Wednesdays through Sundays.  Fall hours will be determined soon and indicated on our website.
     
     One last thing, we have spent a lot of time and effort on landscaping at the winery in the past year.  If you haven’t had a chance to see the results of our efforts, please come on up and check out the Patio, Demonstration Vineyard and Reception area.  Keep us in mind for your next family or corporate event.
 
     Thanks for reading and hope to see you soon!
