Tinhorn Creek winning wines
Hosted by Wine Press Northwest magazine, the Platinum Judging is only by invitation, and includes wines from BC, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that have been first been recognized with a gold or better award at other defined competitions. The resulting winner list is a ‘best of the best’ in the Northwest and is a fun way to discover great wines right before the holidays.
Wine Press Northwest editor Gregg McConnell notes “Earning a Platinum is an outstanding accomplishment, and Double Platinum is an exceptional honor.”
For Tinhorn Creek to receive seven awards is a notable achievement, and winemaker Andrew Windsor is grateful. “We make wines for our customers and not to attain high scores,” he says, “but it is always nice to receive recognition for our hard work. We track our success based on the acceptance of our wines,” he continues. “The fact that we have been consistently selling out of our wines tells us we are on the right track. It’s an honor to work for this great group of people and be the stewards of such a great place; so these awards are for them.”
