This is a tremendous achievement in what is generally regarded as the world’s largest and toughest wine competition. This year, 228 wine experts from around the world, including 66 Masters of Wine and 18 Master Sommeliers, gathered in London in April to taste 15,007 wine entries from around the globe to which they awarded a mere 454 gold medals. Our results can be found below and the complete results of the competition may be found here.

JoieFarm is owned and operated by Heidi Noble & Michael Dinn and is located on their farm on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley in the interior of British Columbia. JoieFarm is interested exclusively in the grape varieties of Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne which excel in the cool-climate, desert landscape of the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. We are particularly interested in making these wines because not only are they wines that we love and enjoy drinking, but we feel these varieties thrive and are relevant in our area. As young winemakers at the forefront of a new wine region, we are interested in exploring the potential and synergy between these aromatic varietals and their role in distinguishing the culinary West Coast of Canada as an emerging and unified cuisine.
