British Columbia Lieutenant Governor’s Wine Awards is BC’s most prestigious wine competition. It is a merger of the province’s two premier judging competitions and is presided over by the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. This is a celebration of the best wines from across the Province with Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals awarded, as well as the Lieutenant Governor’s Platinum medals and the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for the Best Wine in British Columbia.
This year the awards take place on October 3, Laurel Heritage Packinghouse, Kelowna.
“This is the second annual British Columbia Lieutenant Governor’s Wine Awards, and it looks like it’s going to be the best one yet,” says Okanagan Wine Festivals Society Judging Chair, Julian Scholefield. “This year we’re honoured to have judges from around the world join us in celebrating excellence in winemaking in our region. As one of our province’s oldest and most prestigious wine competitions, we feel so proud to represent the Okanagan and it’s diverse wine offerings.”
