Experience excellent wine and fun-filled events at the winery this spring/summer

Oliver, BC (March 24, 2016) – Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is heading into spring with top ratings from world-renowned US wine publication Wine Enthusiast for three of their wines: the 2014 Gewürztraminer received an Editor's Choice Award and a score of 91 and the Tinhorn Creek 2014 Pinot Gris and 2013 Oldfield Series Syrah scored 90 points and 88 points respectively. All ratings and reviews will go live on the Wine Enthusiast website today and will also be published in the May issue, on sale April 5. 

"This year marks the second year that our Tinhorn Creek wines have been endorsed by Wine Enthusiast and we are proud to receive these superb scores from an acclaimed US wine publication", says President and CEO Sandra Oldfield. "It is an honour that our 2014 Gewurztraminer also won Editor's Choice and was recognized as a 'standout among Tinhorn Creek's wide-ranging portfolio'. These ratings reflect the tireless dedication of the entire team at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards."

Over the past years, Tinhorn Creek wines have become increasingly popular with wine critics and connoisseurs across North America. The winery is a prime destination for US travellers who are looking to experience Canada's beautiful Golden Mile Bench region in the Okanagan Valley, as well as to explore the outstanding culinary and wine adventures it offers.
