On October 3, 2013, accolades were handed out for the best wine labels in B.C. at the 2013 British Columbia Wine Label Awards in Kelowna. The Harper’s Trail Late Harvest Riesling won the Best Dessert Label with a package that was designed by Town Hall Communications.
The BC Wine Label Awards are a component of the Okanagan Wine Festival. A complete list of the BC Wine Awards can be found here.
Harper’s Trail winery owner Vicki Collett is thrilled and Town Hall co-owner and senior designer Andrew von Rose shares, “We are proud of the Harper’s Trail packaging, and the nod it gives to the pioneering cattle ranchers of the day. The winery’s namesake Thaddeus Harper was forging new territory, as the Colletts are today, with their winery in B.C.’s new, up-and-coming wine region.”
About Harper’s Trail
Harper’s Trail is the first estate winery from Kamloops. Tucked into the city outskirts on the bank of the South Thompson River, Ed and Vicki Collett’s vineyard sits among rolling hills of sage and grass, home to bighorn sheep, bears, and myriad birds. The backdrop of limestone, hoodoos, and a natural spring in the vineyard contribute to the biodiversity of this rare place.
The wines, made by Michael Bartier of Okanagan Crush Pad, reflect this emerging region with minerality and crisp acidity. Enjoy the winery’s current releses and taste the flavours that will soon be known as characteristic for the Kamloops region. For more information visit www.harperstrail.com.
