Awards & Accolades
2014 - Bronze Medal, 2017 Wine 100 Challenge Shanghai
2009 - “From the Cowichan Valley winery that’s quickly establishing itself as a powerhouse producer comes this ripe and rich blend with minty and coffee elements for the tongue and a peppery finish at the end. Sweetish at first, it then morphs into a sour cherry finish. Foch fans will like it especially.”

2008 - "...plum, cocoa, fresh tilled earth, and an almost nutty flavour. This is an intriguing red that finishes soft and tart... A true locapour."
James Nevison (The Province)
2008 - “This perfect winter wine has pleasing layers of black fruit, mocha and chocolate notes. A blend of Marechal Foch, Foch-Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it’s a good match with roast and ribs”
Tim Pawsey (Taste - BC Liquor Stores)
2007 - Bronze Medal - Northwest Wine Summit, All Canadian Wine Championship
“This medium-bodied wine is bright with red berry aromas and with flavours of cherry and cranberry.”
