2018 Finger Lakes Wine Competition Results!

By . April 3rd, 2018. Posted in Uncategorized

The 18th Annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition benefits Camp Good Days and Special Times, a camp dedicated to bring smiles and memories to children with cancer! This year’s competition was held in Rochester, NY, on March 24 & 25, 2018. It was open to commercial wineries from all producing countries.

in 2017, they had 16 countries, enter more than 3,077 wines, judged by 52 prestigious judges from 11 countries, maintaining the highest international judging standards as we have since they began in 2000!

  • Each wine is judged on its own merit—its presence, balance and varietal character – not by how it compares to other wines in the flight.
  • While it is common knowledge that wines go through various stages of quality development, each wine entered in FLIWC is judged for what it is at the time of judging – not for what it might become in the future.
  • Wines are blind judged in flights, with each wine identified only by a computer generated code number.

This year we submitted 6 wines; 3 of which had never been judged before!  All 6 wines received medals.

Pinot Grigio 2016- SILVER       Chardonnay 2016- SILVER     Siren 2016 – SILVER     Cabernet Franc 2016- SILVER    EVOE! 2015- SILVER   and  Rose’ 2016- BRONZE\

 

Congrats to our winemaker Manolo Gomez,  to our tasting and sales staff and management, and to our Vineyard management team….because without good grapes you cant make good wine!
