Recognition for wineries

Two Kelowna wineries have placed in the top three in the InterVin International Wine Awards competition put on by Vines magazine.

Mission Hill Family Estate was named Winery of the Year, while Sandhill Wines placed third in that category, in a field of 100 wineries from 15 countries.

To snare the honour, Mission Hill wines brought home 20 medals in the competition, with some from virtually every category of wine, against more than 300 other wineries.

Mission Hill proprietor Anthony von Mandl said, “This recognition is to our entire team’s credit, with special acknowledgement for Mission Hill’s winemaker John Simes.

“His vision, discerning approach and diligent work is without dispute.”
