D’Angelo Estate Winery holds the distinction of being the only winery to win back-to-back gold medals for Ice Wine at the CuveeAwards.
The 1996 D’Angelo vintage of ice wine won a double-gold medal for ‘Best Dessert Wine‘ at the Great Lakes Wine Competition and the D’Angelo 1996 Foch was ranked in the top 100 wines in the world. One of Sal’s most cherished awards was the ‘Best of the Best‘ award for his 1993 Pinot Noir.
In 1999, Sal D’Angelo was the first recipient outside of the Niagara region ever to win the covetedGrape King Award. The prestigious award, begun in 1956, is presented each year to officially proclaim the highest quality vineyard in the province of Ontario for that year. It was established to recognize the tremendous efforts put forth by the winning vineyard to achieve production of the most superior quality vineyard in Ontario for that season. The award’s recipient is designated by research and viticultural specialists from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in the province as having ‘The Best of The Best’ vineyard for the year.
