On Tuesday, September 3, the 2013 Maryland Wine Governor’s Cup will be presented at the Johns Hopkins’ Evergreen Museum & Library. This event is by invitation-only. If you are interested in attending, contact Briana Berg at the Maryland Wineries Association.
The Maryland Wine Governor’s Cup has been awarded for more than two decades with this being the 23rd annual event. For this year’s competition, three teams of judges selected from restaurants, retail and press judged the blind competition.
Winemakers from the winning wineries will attend the event and pour wine samples. Light fare including Maryland’s Keyes Creamery cheese will be served.
According to a recent email from Maryland Wineries Association, Kevin Atticks noted, “Al Spoler, competition director, said that this year’s competition was one of the most rewarding he’s ever been involved in. “We are witnessing an explosion not only in the number of wineries in the state, but in the across-the-board quality.”
First Lady Katie O’Malley will be on hand to present this year’s Maryland Wine Governor’s Cup. Numerous wineries won awards for their wines this year. The Double Gold Medalists were Black Ankle Vineyards, Cascia Vineyards and Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard. To find out the full list of awards contact the Maryland Wineries Association.
Congratulations to Maryland wineries for their hard work in creating quality wines.
