Big Cork wines are bold, expressive and extraordinary… and now we can add award winning to that list! We’re excited to announce we received five medals at the seventh annual Maryland Winemasters Choice Awards, including two Gold medals and a Best in Class acknowledgement. The following awards were presented to us:

  • Best in Class (Off-Dry): Vidal 2012
  • Gold Medal: Vidal 2012
  • Gold Medal: Late Harvest Vidal Blanc 2012
  • Silver Medal: Traminette 2012
  • Bronze Medal: Chardonnay 2012

More than 25 winemakers judged submissions alongside members of the wine industry. More than 100 wines in 25 flights were sampled and critiqued. Wines were divided into categories based on their characteristics and judged in a blind tasting. This annual competition precedes the Maryland Governor’s Cup Wine Competition, which is scheduled for Aug. 25.
