I found out Sunday that I won two medals in the NY State Fair Amateur Wine Makers Competition. My Pinot Noir won silver and my Chocolate Raspberry Port won gold.

Hopefully I will have some pictures in a few days when my medals arrive.

Was this your 1st competition?

I look forward to seeing the photos.

Was this your 1st competition?

Thank you everyone. No this is not my first metal. I took silver last year at the State Fair with a different Pinot Noir. I also won bronze in the Winemaker Magazine contest with that same Pinot. That is the bottle in my avatar and yes, that one was the first wine I have entered.

My medals still have not arrived in the mail :m so pictures will have to wait till then.
Wow - that is impressive! Have you (or would you) shared your recipe? I am very interested in the port. How long had it aged?

Great job :)
