Tawse Winery named country’s best winery in Canadian Wine Awards

Vineland, Ont. – For the second year in a row, Vineland, Ont.’s Tawse Winery has been named Canada’s Winery of the Year by the Wine Access Canadian Wine Awards.

The winery, owned by Moray Tawse, takes an organic and biodynamic approach to winemaking, using no pesticides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers. The company took 24 medals at the recent Canadian Wine Awards, including six gold, seven silver and 11 bronze medals.

“Our philosophy is that great wine begins in the vineyard and I’m indebted to our winemaker Paul Pender, and this team, who are as involved in viticulture as they are in making wine,” says Tawse.

Earlier this year Tawse Winery was also named one of Food in Canada’s Top 10 Innovators.
