The Hamilton Spectator - - FOOD - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

A rel­a­tively new Beamsville win­ery has been named win­ery of the year by the WineAlign Na­tional Wine Awards of Canada.

Red­stone Win­ery, owned by Mo­ray Tawse, was se­lected for the award by WineAlign’s rat­ing web­site from more than 270 winer­ies across the coun­try.

Red­stone took 10 medals in the com­pe­ti­tion, with plat­inums go­ing to the 2013 Lime­stone Ries­ling and 2013 Se­lect Vine­yards Chardon­nay and golds to the 2013 Lime­stone Chardon­nay, 2015 Sparkling Rose and 2013 Ni­a­gara Chardon­nay.

Tawse pur­chased the 38-acre Lin­coln lakeshore property at 4245 King St. in 2009, open­ing the Red­stone Hos­pi­tal­ity Cen­tre in May 2015, with an 80-seat restau­rant, pri­vate din­ing room and out­door pa­tio space that op­er­ates seven days a week.

Red­stone wine­maker Rene Van Ede said “free­dom” was the se­cret to suc­cess.

“As a wine­maker, many fac­tors in­flu­ence the qual­ity of the wine,” he said.

“When mak­ing Red­stone wines, I am not lim­ited to a style or a ter­roir, so free­dom to cre­ate a wine that is first and fore­most tasty is al­ways my goal.”
