The 2008 All Canadian Wine Championships Gold Medal Results

The results of the 2008 All Canadian Wine Championships just hit my in-box. I thought I would let you know who won what - but instead of taking the thunder away from the organizers I will just post the Gold Medal winning wines ... the rest can be found later this week (possibly as early as Monday May 19, 2008) on the All Canadian Wine Championships website found at the bottom of this report.
