The GOODS from Painted Rock Estate Winery

Penticton, BC | It is with great pleasure that we announce that Painted Rock Estate Winery has won Winery of the Year honours at the 2018-19 InterVin International Wine Awards. It’s the second time in five years that our estate was the top-performing producer at the respected international competition.

This year’s awards featured over 1,200 entries from 17 countries. Our 2015 Cabernet Franc, 2014 Cabernet Franc and 2014 Syrah were awarded gold medals and our 2014 Merlot, 2015 Malbec and 2015 Red Icon were awarded silver medals.  

InterVin Head Judge Christopher Waters said Painted Rock has been a consistent performer at the wine competition. “Since entering InterVin for the first time in 2013, Painted Rock has always been in the hunt for the competition’s top awards,” Waters explains. “The ambitious family-owned estate winery overlooking Skaha Lake won Winery of the Year honours in 2014 and repeated that feat over wineries from 17 countries again this year.”

Consistency is key for Painted Rock as we continue to build our reputation both at home and internationally. “An award like this is extremely validating” according to Painted Rock Proprietor John Skinner. “Our journey has always been to create the highest quality wines from our single vineyard estate. It is through the efforts of our winemaking and viticultural teams, both overseen by our Bordeaux consultant Alain Sutre, and lead by Assistant Winemaker Gabriel Reis and Vineyard Manager Barry Green, that we have been able to harness the potential of the estate. My focus now is introducing the world to Okanagan wines. Waving the flag for Canada and winning business for our community.”
