The proposal to create a sub-geographical indicator for the Naramata Bench area in the Okanagan has received approval from those wineries and growers who qualified to vote. The BC Wine Authority has issued the results here: Naramata Bench Ballot Results. The Yes vote ranged from 71% to 81% in favour depending upon the categorization of the results. However, in all cases, it exceeded the minimum 2/3 threshold required for approval. The BCWA will now submit a report and recommendation to the Minister of Agriculture.
