White Blends

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good, single varietal labelled wine, but sometimes, the vintners’ art beckons and its good to have a well-crafted blend. The best blends will be a testament to harmony as the winemaker strives to bring out the best of each grape and make a wine far greater than the sum of its parts. This year’s winners cover a range of styles, and yes, some have a little sweetness, but most importantly, these wines rose to the very top at the Alberta Beverage Awards.
