Anthony von Mandl—one of the newest billionaires to make the annual Forbes magazine list—just keeps adding to his portfolio of exceptional B.C. wineries. He recently purchased Liquidity Wines, which joins the “Great Wineries of the Okanagan” family of Mission Hill Family Estate, CedarCreek, Martin’s Lane, CheckMate and Road 13.

The Chefs’ Table Society of B.C. has honoured the late, great wine industry pioneer Harry McWatters by establishing a scholarship fund in his honour, with a donation of $2,000 per year for at least five years. The scholarship will be eligible to students enrolled in a wine or tourism program at Okanagan College and participating in an international education experience.

We say a fond farewell to Robert Summers, the senior winemaker who turned Hester Creek Estate Winery into one of the most highly acclaimed in the South Okanagan. After 14 years of fine craftsmanship, he has announced his retirement. Filling his shoes will be longtime winemaker Mark Hopley and assistant winemaker Rebecca Ruggeri.
