Begun in 1993, this prestigious international competition grants the most coveted awards in the winemaking world.

Small wonder, considering the competition has grown from just over four hundred tasting samples in the first year to three thousand samples, supplied by forty wine producing countries, in 2007. To insure objectivity, the hallmark of any meaningful contest, all individual tastings are blind and conducted by panels of judges composed of full-time wine professionals from several different countries.

We have entered this heralded competition twice, and have been honored with the gold medal for champagne in 2001, and the silver medal for ice wine, in 2003. In 2001, we were the first, and are still, the only American winery so honored with the gold for champagne.
