Ferrante Winery Pinot Gris Takes American Fine Wine Award

More than 500 American-produced winers were swirled and sipped during last month's annual American Fine Wine Competition in Florida. the results are now in and the winners are two wines from California and Ohio.

Selected as Best Red Wine was the 2007 Cabernet Franc from Turnbull in Napa Valley, California. While the Best White Wine honors went to the 2008 Pinot Gris from Ferrante Winery in Grand River Valley.

The judges awarded more than 40 Double Gold medal winners. Double Gold medals were awarded only when all judges on the panel of four thought the wine was worthy of a gold medal, thereby moving it into the “best of show” category, where all 20 judges decided the final winner.

During our swing through Geneva area wineries back in December, we found Ferrante to be perhaps the best all-round winery visited. You can read about our trip here.
