From the fourth annual competition of the Alberta Beverage Awards held in the summer of 2016, these are the best performers in each category.

Domaine Houchart Rose 2015    $19.95    It’s easy to see why this rose is a winner!  A family-owned winery in the Cotes de Provence, this is a delicious blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvedre.  Together these grapes create a lively, crisp dry wine full of fresh red currant flavours.

Torres Vina Esmeralda 2015  $14.95  Delicious and refreshing white from Spain at a great price!

Michel Torino Don David Malbec 2013  $16.95  Silky tannins, plush mouthfeel, low acidity and blueberry fruit, Malbecs are always a hit with Alberta beef.  If you love Malbec, you’ve got to try this one!

Gerard Bertrand Grand Terroir Tautavel 2013  $24.95  This has a polished texture, with concentrated flavours of cherry tart, ganache and blackberry preserves.  The judge says “this silky, smooth and velvety wine is a sure crowd pleaser and a perfect partner to almost any food and any situation.”

Spirit Hills Saskwatch  $22.95  Located in Dewinton, Spirit Hills integrates organic herbs and berries with ancient honey wine fermentation methods to produce high quality wines with a distinct Alberta flavour.  Honey wine, also known as mead, is the oldest fermented beverage in the world.  This has saskatoon and blueberries in the wine.
