Meadow Vista Honey Wines has been honoured as it is the first Okanagan mead to win a BC Wine Award.

During the 2014 BC Wine Awards held earlier in the week the artisan winery received a bronze and gold medal, their first from the 2014 Okanagan Wine Festivals. The winery, located in SE Kelowna, was awarded gold for its Ostara, a pyment style blend of Pinot Gris and honey. Meadow Vista then received a bronze medal for Bliss, its sparkling cherry honey wine.

“Meadow Vista, who only opened the doors to its new winery and tasting room in February, has had a great year with two Gold and two Silver at the World Wine Championships in July and a gold and a bronze at the All Canadian Wine Championships in May,” said Sales Assistant Caitlin Dixon.

Two new wines will be released from the winery this month including a champagne style honey wine called Joy. With its light, fresh taste and crisp bubbles, Joy is available by the case only pre-orders.

The second will be a new wine called Rubus, a blackberry honey wine that is an ‘ode’ to the red wine drinker. Both will be released mid-October and will be available for tasting at the Valley First Consumer Tasting October 10th and 11th during the wine festival.
