2010 NC State Fair: Update

One of my wife's co-workers in their Raleigh office, was nice enough to send us a picture of our wine bottle with the 2nd place ribbon.

One other thing, it should be noted that a 2nd place ribbon isn't like getting a silver medal.  A silver medal usually says your wine was awarded the appropriate amount of points to achieve the medal, but there could be multiple silver medals in that category.  The 2nd place ribbon means it was considered the 2nd best wine in the entire category.  Since the category was White Vinifera, the judges thought that it was the 2nd best white wine made from vinifera grapes that was submitted to the competition.

We've already submitted this wine to another competition in California, and I am looking forward to seeing how it does there as well.

Congratulations to all the winners at the NC State Fair!


  1. Robbie,
    Again, congratulations on your P.G. What was the source of the grapes or must you used? Also, how long was it aged?


  2. The PG juice was purchased from Brehm Vineyards. I fermented it in December of 2009, and bottled it in July of this year.
