PA’s finest wines were showcased today at the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. Agriculture Secretary George Greig said that, “This multi-billion dollar, family-friendly industry is growing in size and quality," adding that, “All of this year’s wine entries received quality awards, an example of our vintners’ commitment to improving our wines.” The show’s best wines in three categories received Governors Cup awards. Seven Mountains Wine Cellars of Spring Mills, Centre Co., received Best of Show Sweet/Dessert Grape with its 2012 Ice Wine, a blend of 3 popular wines from PA, which also received Double Gold honors. Wines were judged prior to the show by Rutgers University staff in NJ, ensuring impartial evaluation by judges not associated with PA’s wine industry. You'll be able to see wine featured again at the Celebrity Great Grape Stomp Thursday, at 5:30pm in the Farm Show Small Arena.
