The GOODS from Meyer Family Vineyards
Okanagan Falls | Meyer Family Vineyards has established a pristine reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. If you’ve had a chance to meet their winemaker & viticulturist of 10-years, Chris Carson, you will know that he loves these iconic burgundy grapes which are sweeping up awards at Canada’s largest and most prestigious wine competition, “The Nationals”.
Along with one Platinum, 3 golds and 2 silver medals, Meyer has just been awarded #4 small winery in Canada (annual production under 10,000 cases per year), #6 winery in British Columbia and #11 overall winery in Canada (out of 257 wineries entered). All of these awards represent Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay from the superior 2016 and 2017 vintages and the continued dedication of their talented team. Over the last six years, Meyer has placed in the Top 12 wineries in Canada four times.
WineAlign’s website states that the Platinum award is only awarded to the top one percent of wines judged making Meyer one of only 18 wineries to receive this award. Their Platinum winner 2016 Micro Cuvée Chardonnay is one of their five Chardonnays and is the most harmonious blend of only the best grapes from the best block and barrel selection. This premium wine is hard to find as they only produced about 100 cases this vintage which are offered first to wine club members and a select few restaurant partners.
Meyer’s 3 gold medals were awarded to their 2016 Micro Cuvée Pinot Noir, 2016 Reimer Vineyard Pinot Noir and 2016 McLean Creek Road Chardonnay and 2 silver medals awarded to their 2016 Okanagan Valley Pinot Noir and 2017 Stevens Block Chardonnay. Most of their 2016 vintages are nearly sold out, although Meyer’s wine club offers access to some of these wines in their Fall shipment.
