The Seattle Times 2016 Top 50 Regional Wines

From the thousands of contenders he tasted this year he ranks the standouts, many of which sell for less than $30 a bottle - November 11, 2016

By: Andy Perdue

THROUGH THE COURSE of 2016, I’ve tasted thousands of wines from throughout the Pacific Northwest (and around the globe, for that matter).

Knowing I’ll be producing this year-end list, I think about wines that really stand out. I tasted the No. 4 and 5 wines on this year’s list in the first quarter, and each stood out in my mind for the entire year, both for their clarity as well as purity of fruit.

2016 Cascadia Wine Competition

Our highlights include: Tightrope Winery in Naramata, B.C., won six gold medals. The winery also won six gold medals in last year’s competition. - March 16, 2017

By: Great Northwest wine

“Wow, 2015 was not an easy year for making white wines,” Palencia told Great Northwest Wine. “This award speaks to the quality of the vineyards.”

Palencia used grapes from Spanish Castle and Evergreen Vineyard, both owned by the Milbrandt brothers. Ryan Flanagan is the vineyard manager for both.

Albariño is a relatively obscure grape from the Galicia region of northwestern Spain. It is known for its clean flavors and, thanks to naturally bright acidity, it pairs beautifully with food. Palencia said he enjoys pairing Albariño with such foods as shellfish, ceviche and a variety of Mexican foods.

Anthony Gismondi: List of BC Top 20 Wines

Anthony Gismondi: Mission Hill wins five medals in national competition

WineAlign award haul bodes well for B.C. wineries

There was plenty of good news regarding B.C. wineries as the WineAlign 2014 National Wine Awards of Canada were recently announced (disclaimer: I share the head judging duties with my Ontario counterpart David Lawrason).

The Canadian Winery of the Year went to Peller Estates Niagara, which barely eclipsed the 2013 winner, Mission Hill Family Estate. Both wineries grabbed one platinum medal and four gold medals. Next was Nk’Mip Cellars, Jackson-Triggs Niagara and three-time winner Tawse Winery. Quails’ Gate, Road 13 and Stag’s Hollow round out the B.C. wineries in the top 10. You can view all the result here.

What you won’t find broken down in the results are the top 20 rated wines from British Columbia. That list is the essence of today’s column. You can locate these wines first, direct from the winery, then at the usual outlets: VQA stores, private wine shop, B.C. Liquor stores and restaurants.
