    Just noticed this... We are currently working on Leelanau's phone book if you need some good restaurants to go to! Though I need to wait a week or so until they send the restaurant section in (they supply). I betcha you sell a whole bunch of units once people can see how easy a device it is to use.

    I entered 2 wine in the competition and probably won't go unless I win a "Major Award". The wines were sent marked "Fragile". LOL! This would seem to be a good event for you though.

    So the results of the WineMaker Competition were released yesterday. How did everyone do?

    My 2017 Albarino and my 2016 Cab Franc both won bronze medals.

    Congrats to everybody. I had the same experience as Filosophic. 5 entries, 4 medals. Gerwurztraminer (silver), Old Vieux Chateau du Roi (Silver), Eclipse Nocturnal (Bronze), and Chardonnay (Silver). My Merlot didn't medal.

    I entered 2 and got one bronze for my Norton blend but honestly thought it was deserving of better, curious what the notes say. Wasn't really expecting anything except notes for the Sauv Blanc.

    Hi Fred. I thought the same thing about my Albarino. It's a dry Spanish varietal being judged in the same class as off-dry/sweet Moscato. (I think Moscato needs it own class.) I am curious about the notes for my stuff, too.

    Conversely, there were many entries this year. Perhaps the judges have become more critical, and we all need to "up our game".

    There were only 2 entries in my category "Red Native American Blend" and both got bronze. Don't know if 2 entries was good or bad. It has been the same amount of entries the past several years. My next year, if any, will be 2018s so I will have to step up my game especially the blending.
