Kentucky wines claimed numerous honors in the 2010 Wines of the South Competition

 Wines of the South is an annual regional wine competition designed to promote and celebrate the great taste of Southern wine vintages.  Wineries from 14 states have this unique venue to compare, compete, and promote the art of winemaking.  Experienced professionals from around the region judge entries.  All wines are judged blind, served at the appropriate temperature, and ranked with the industry standard 20-point scale.

Kentucky wineries won two concordance gold medals, one gold medal, thirteen silver, and ten bronze.  All judges must give the wine a gold medal to earn a concordance gold.
