Congratulations to the Bear River Vineyards & Winery  who won four medals, one Silver and three Bronze in March, 2012.

Bear River Winery

Sixty-four international judges tasted 3,200 entries of wine from 720 wineries in 22 countries at the 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition for Camp Good Days in New York.  As the largest charitable wine competition in North America, the FLIWC sponsors Camp Good Days, a summer camp devoted to children with life-threatening illnesses and to the support of their families.

For the third year in a row Bear River Vineyards has won Medals for their two popular dry red table wines, the 2010 Baco Noir / Marechal Foch and the 2010 “1611” Signature Red.

This year the 2010 Black Fly Pinot Noir was awarded a Silver Medal and the 2010 Meguma Terrane Riesling was awarded a Bronze.  Among all medal winning Pinot Noir wines, less than half of the entries were Estate Grown.  Bear River Vineyards, as a single vineyard estate winery, demonstrates that it is indeed possible to grow Pinot Noir and other popular European grapes in Nova Scotia.
