Glenora Wine Cellars Wins Double Gold Medals, Dundee, New York

In February, Glenora Wine Cellars received four Double Gold medals and three Gold medals in the Best of Appellation Evaluation respectively for their Dry Riesling, Riesling, Merlot, Pinot Blanc, Vintner's Select Dry Riesling, Cabernet Franc, and Method Champenoise Brut.

The Best of Appellation evaluation (BOA), a service of Appellation America from Napa, California, focuses more on the origin of the grapes and the character of the appellation. The wine is judged against other wines from that specific area.

"This is another example of how important the relationship with our grape growers is," said Steve DiFrancesco, Winemaker at Glenora Wine Cellars. "Their critical thinking, strategic planning, and hard work in their vineyards are paramount in producing these award winning wines." Glenora Wine Cellars has been in the wine industry for over 30 years producing award winning high quality wines.

Glenora Wine Cellars was the first winery on Seneca Lake in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes Wine Country.  Today the property offers a 30-room inn (Inn at Glenora) and a gourmet restaurant (Veraisons) joining the winery on the beautifully groomed 40-acre estate.
