Awards

Our Philosophy with Competitions

Competitions enlighten our winegrowing and winemaking styles. We choose competitions from International, Foreign and Regional to subject our wines to judgement. From the  awards we garner we can take comfort in knowing that we are presenting you, our wine loving customer, the best we can produce on a given year. Enjoy!

Meritage Membership

Burntshirt Vineyards is honored to have our flagship premium blend, our O Cellars Meritage Red, carry the Meritage moniker.

Meritage is a badge given by the Meritage Alliance, a group of American vintners who joined forces to recognize “provocative red or white wines crafted solely from specific ‘noble’ Bordeaux grape varieties and are considered to be the very best wines of the vintage.”

Meritage comes from a combination of the words “Merit and “Heritage”, recognizing the quality of the grapes and the centuries-old tradition of blending, long considered to be the highest form of the winemaker’s art.  For more information on visit the Meritage Alliance website.
