We are thrilled to announce that our Mercator Vineyards Reserve Marquette has been awarded a Double Gold in the 2022 All Canadian Wine Championships. 
This Reserve Marquette is made from two vintages in the Appassimento method (dried grapes). 2019 was cool and produced vibrant wines. 2020 was warm and dry and produced concentrated wines. Drying Marquette grapes in both of these vintages produced very different yet successful results, however, the optimal balance and expression of our Reserve Marquette was achieved by blending these two distinctly different vintages together.
Thank you to our Head Winemaker Gina Haverstock, Becca Griffin and the whole winemaking team. Congratulations to all of our fellow award-winning Canadian wineries.
