But I can give you a few recommendations based on my three visits to the tasting room so far!
I've had great wines from all over but here's a few wineries or tables with one or more wineries represented that you should not miss:
Long Shadows - From Walla, Walla Washington - big beautiful reds and a killer riesling - I bought some and don't even like rielsling that much!
Inland Trading - always some of the best Australian shiraz available - including from the fabulous Rolf Binder.
Majella Wines - Some of Coonawarra's nicest wines - cab, shiraz and sparkling.
Deutz - Champagne, including a vintage 1998 that will make you consider the second mortgage needed to buy a case - at $175 a bottle, one of the Festival's most expensive.
Catena - Viva Malbec! But also a great reserve cabernet sauvignon.
Magnanimus Wine Group - All organic wines from Mendocino, California - try especially the Old River Road cabernet.
Byron - If you saw Sideways - the movie - you know that Santa Barbara makes delicious pinot noir and chardonnay - great stuff here.
Working Horse Winery - Wines from this new BC organic winery from veteran Tilman Hainle can only be tried at Puddifoot's display and tasting from the fantastic Riedel glasses - the only glasses I use at home. Tilman was BC's first organic winemaker and his new pinot noir ice wine is unbelievable - and unbelievably rare!
Osoyoos Larose - This BC-French joint venture in the Okanagan is producing amazing Bordeaux-blend wines - not surprising when the French half is Gruaud Larose!
Olivier Leflaive Wines - Best chardonnay in the house -the $115 Puligny-Montrachet premier cru Champ Gain - formidable! Magnifique!
But there's so much more - I hope you have a chance to taste some of it, as the Festival is of course, sold out!
