Impressive medal haul for SW Vineyards in IWSC

South West Vineyards results in the IWSC Awards    Unknown

Seven South West wine producers were awarded 18 medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition results for Eastern Europe, Asia, USA, Canada, Portugal, Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom, announced on 3rd May. Although in the past relatively few SW vineyards entered this competition, numbers are rising, and this year's excellent results for English wine producers will encourage future entries.

Out of 46 Gold and Gold Outstanding medals, Portugal and Canada took the lead, with Canada scooping 13 of these (11 of for their famous Icewine) and 18 for Portugal. Hot on their heels was England with a record breaking 7 Gold Medals, bolstering England’s position amongst the great wine producing countries of the world.

Gold Medal for Dorset's Langham

One of the Golds came to the SW, to Dorset’s Langham Winery for their sparkling Blanc de Blancs 2011. Others were awarded to vineyards from the SE: Chapel Down, Court Garden, Nutbourne, Nyetimber (2), Ridgeview.

Camel Valley, Furleigh and Langham were awarded Silver Outstanding, all for sparkling wines.

For still wines there were Silvers for white wines from Lyme Bay (2) and Camel Valley and for a red for Sixteen Ridges.

Congratulations to all SW medal winners.
