We’re thrilled to announce that the 2015 Unicus (Grüner Veltliner) won best in show at Gold Medal Plates in Edmonton. We were paired with Chef Shane Chartrand of Sage Restaurant, who took home bronze for his ‘Charcoal & Smoke’ dish featuring charcoal sablefish and cold smoked albacore tuna. His dish was simply stunning:
