For the past 13 years, the Wine Press Northwest magazine has invited only gold-winning wines to compete against one another in a Platinum Judging to determine the best wines that the Pacific Northwest region has to offer. The gold medals have to be awarded by approved competitions and at this most recent Platinum Judging, there were 552 entries! The experienced panel of judges were hand selected and tasted the wines blind with no knowledge of producer or price.
In addition to the DOUBLE PLATINUM for the Tawny, we were also awarded a PLATINUM medal for both the 2011 Riesling and the 2010 Reserve Chardonnay; a DOUBLE GOLD medal for the 2011 Viognier; and a GOLD for both the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc and the 2010 Reserve Pinot Noir. We’re very pleased that all our entries won such notable recognition!
We are located on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the heart of the Okanangan Valley. At LA FRENZ , we believe the quality in the bottle begins in the vineyard. Cutting edge and meticulous vineyard practices are used in combination with varieties tailored to the unique soils and micro climates of our vineyard sites to produce the vibrant and intense grape characters found only in the Okanagan Valley. The potential of the resulting fruit, using experience and careful stewardship throughout the vinification process, is maintained and enhanced to create exceptional wines that truly reflect the grape variety and vineyard site.
We welcome you to our unique wine shop overlooking Lake Okanagan. This spectacular view was featured on the $100 banknote from 1954 to 1975.
