GOLD: MIRADORO AT TINHORN CREEK

Silver: Old Vines Restaurant at Quails' Gate  |  Bronze: Bacchus Bistro at Domaine de Chaberton  |  Honourable Mentions: The Terrace at Mission Hill & Vineyard Terrace at CedarCreek

Manny Ferreira (of Le Gavroche) “has raised the bar in South Okanagan winery dining,” one judge said of Gold winner Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek. In the kitchen, Jeff Van Geest (ex-Aurora Bistro) “brings a keen awareness of sourcing the local and seasonal that puts this restaurant at the top of its class.” Silver winner Old Vines at Quails’ Gate was cited for its “consistent, year-round quality, in a setting that delivers it all.” Bronze went to the only non-Okanagan finalist, the “often (and unfairly) overlooked” Bacchus Bistro at Domaine de Chaberton in Langley, where “generous portions of traditional French cuisine” and “a killer lobster bisque” impressed the judges. The Terrace at Mission Hill and Vineyard Terrace at CedarCreek earned Honorable Mentions.
