We do what we do because we love it. We make things that people share, people enjoy, and people treat themselves to. That’s really the reason we get up and go each day. So when we get to not only make the wine that makes people happy, but receive awards for those wines, we’re pretty much over the moon!
This year we are thrilled, honored, and grateful to have won awards from the New York International Wine Competition, as well as the Indy International Wine Competition. Out of thousands of entrants from around the world, our wines were chosen by distinguished judges as some of the best in their categories.
The Indy International Wine Competition is the largest independently organized wine competition in the U.S. This competition had over 2,000 entrants from 14 different countries! Here, our Traminette won Double Gold and Blue Silk and Frontenac won Silver awards.
At the New York International Wine Competition, our wine (among over 1,400 other entrants’ wines) were judged by trade buyers from top importers, wine shops, restaurants, and sommeliers in the form of a blind taste test. Here, Tanglewood won Michigan Fruit Winery of the Year and Blue Silk won Gold for fruit wine. These awards were unique because they opened up a great opportunity to have Blue Silk sold, distributed, and imported to other areas around the country and the rest of the world.
Thank you for enjoying our wines so that we can continue to enjoy making them.
