2009 Virginia Wine Lover Magazine Wine Classic

Meredith Hemenway - Aug 02, 2009

The competition, which was sponsored and produced by Virginia Wine Lover Magazine, was open to all Virginia wine makers and saw entries from nearly two dozen of the state’s wineries and vineyards that included more than one hundred varietals and encompassed virtually every grape grown in the commonwealth. The invited panel of judges was comprised of authoritative members of the food and wine community, who are ardent supporters of the state’s burgeoning industry. They evaluated each entrant on its relative merits as it pertained to its specified category by using a double blind tasting process and utilizing a modified version of the Davis 20-Point system. Judging took place in late June at the Riverstone Chop House in Suffolk, Virginia and was privately conducted. Winners have been categorized according to Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze levels and include multiple winners for each category—an alphabetical listing of all winners for each medal level.
