Governor’s Cup Wine Competition

Posted on March 3, 2014 by Nate Walsh

Mark, Vicki and Dave attended the Governor’s Cup Gala for the 2014 Governor’s Cup announcement on Thursday, February 27th.

We would like to congratulate Matthew Meyer and Williamsburg Winery for winning the Governor’s Cup for their 2010 Adagio blend.

Our 2011 Meritage received a Gold medal and is in the Governor’s Cup Case.  The Governor’s Case is comprised of the top 12 highest scoring wines out of the 410 entries of Virginia wine that were submitted to the competition by 96 different wineries.  The complete list of awards from the competition can be found here.  Mark and Vicki will have the opportunity to participate in educational seminars and tastings with other winemakers in the state, discussing this wine and the techniques which were used to create it.

Our 2012 Viognier and 2011 Petit Verdot both received a Silver Medal, and the 2012 Chardonnay received Bronze.
