The Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge has just announced their 2016 medal winners and we are proud to announce that Habersham Vineyards won 8 different medals!

Our Creekstone Chambourcin and Gewürztraminer both won gold medals while our Creekstone Cabernet Sauvignon, Creekstone Chardonnay, Southern Harvest Heritage Red, and Southern Harvest White Muscadine won silvers. Our Scarlett and Cherokee Rose wines won bronze medals.

We are excited to have so many of our wines win medals this year as the competition is always stiff due to Georgia having so many great local wineries throughout the state. There will be a reception and awards banquet on November 9th where superlatives will be given out for “best in class” in addition to the prestigious overall top award, the Oglethorpe Trophy.

The Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge was created to celebrate the growth of the Georgia wine industry as a regional and national leader in wine making. Georgia grows a wide variety of wine grapes, including Chardonnay, Gruner Veltliner, Viognier, Petit Manseng, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese among Vitis vinifera and hybrids such as Blanc du Bois, Chardonel, Traminette, Vidal Blanc, Lenoir, Lomanto and Norton along with regional favorites like Muscadine wines, honey wines (mead) and hard ciders.

Be sure to stop by and visit us soon for one of our wine tastings and enjoy these award winners in person!
