Gold never gets old! We're pleased to announce the results of the World Wine Championships by The Beverage Testing Institute, in which the winery was awarded 5 gold medals and 3 silver medals, as well as 3 “Best Buy” designations. We're really happy that our winning wines reflect such diversity of varietals and styles. It's testament to our winemaker, Lindsay Stevens’, skills. She's especially proud of the Dry Rosé score - that particular style of wine takes real winemaking prowess to do well, and Lindsay really hit it out of the park with the 2012.
The five gold medals were given to: 2011 EIS Late Harvest Riesling (score 95), 2012 Dry Rosé (score 93, “Best Buy”), 2012 Semi-dry Riesling (score 91, “Best Buy”), Apple Mystique (score 91, “Best Buy”), and 2011 Gewurztraminer (score 90).
The three silver medals were given to: 2011 Reserve Chardonnay (score 88), 2011 Vintner’s Cuvée Chardonnay (score 87), and 2011 Main Chardonnay (score 85).
