Congratulations to the winners of the 2010 WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition!
This year, there were more than 4,500 entries to the competition, from all fifty US states, eight Canadian provinces, and eight other countries (including submissions from Spain and Turkey!). All of us at Vintner’s Circle would like to pass along a special kudos to our customers who received awards:
Dave Becker won five medals! He received two gold medals: one for his 2008 Niagara Mist Peach Chardonnay, and another for his 2008 White Chocolate Port. He won three bronze medals for his 2007 Vidal Ice Wine, his 2008 Okanagan Peach Ice Wine, and his 2009 Banana Pineapple Viognier.
Doug Lemon won a bronze medal for his 2008 homemade fruit mead, a blend of blueberry honey and blueberries.
David Ugi won two medals; he received a silver medal for his 2009 Okanagan Red Meritage and a bronze medal for his 2009 Exotic Fruit White Zinfandel.
We’re proud of our award-winning wine makers, and we’re already excited for next year’s competition!
