The Miradoro Restaurant

Miradoro Restaurant, at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, was honoured this month with a gold medal for Best Winery and Vineyard Dining at the 23rd Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.

In front of an audience of leading restaurateurs, chefs and service professionals, relative newcomer Miradoro Restaurant — opened April, 2011 — took top honours among winery restaurants. Past winners in this category have included Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate and the Terrace at Mission Hill, who this year took home the silver medal and honorable mention, respectively.

The Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards brought together a panel of 18 food and wine experts who deliberated on the winners. One judge stated that in the kitchen, Executive Chef Jeff Van Geest “brings a keen awareness of sourcing the local and seasonal that puts this restaurant at the top of its class.” Miradoro’s Restaurateur Manuel Ferreira (also of Le Gavroche in Vancouver) was also lauded for upping the ante in South Okanagan winery dining in his partnership with Tinhorn Creek.

“This award recognizes excellence, and reflects the talent and the tireless dedication of our team to continually raise the bar in all aspects of our restaurant with the ultimate goal of creating the best experience for our guests, said a thrilled Ferreira.

The destination restaurant has also been named one of the “World’s Best Winery Restaurants” by Wine Access magazine.
