The 2016 International Wine Competition

25 Apr

The International Wine Competition held March 18-20 at the Downtown Holiday Inn to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times had 3824 Wines entered which represented 916 Wineries – 26 countries!

I just wanted to point out and congratulate our local wineries and commend how well they did. We often do not realize what a prize we have right here in our backyard! The Finger Lakes may not have won “Best of Show”, however, 21 New York wines received Double Gold, 40 received Gold, 314 received Silver and 158 received Bronze.

One particular wine we would like to highlight is the Heron Hill Semi Sweet Riesling.  Out of 1275 white wines entered, this delicious Riesling took a Double Gold. A smooth wine with notes of pear and ripe melon joined with subtle aromas of white flowers and honey. It pairs well with New York State sharp cheddar cheeses or a creamy Brie along with peach chutney. Or serve it with a peach or pear sorbet for dessert.

We carry many of the Heron Hill wines with award winning taste that are easy on the wallet – enjoy!
