Congratulations to all the award winners at the 2014 Governor's Cup Colorado Winemaking Competition! What a perfect event to showcase the best wines of Colorado. Warren Winiarski happened to be one of the judges this year and was pleased with the varietals brought to the table. “I was truly impressed with the quality and direction of Colorado’s wine producers. The industry has come a long way since I made wine here 46 years ago! Quite a number of the wines I tasted were beyond expressing merely the region but had the character of classics.” said Warren Winiarski, 73' Cabernet Sauvignon winner of the 1976 Judgment of Paris tasting. BookCliff Vineyards won Gold medals for Malbec, Petit Verdot and Friday's Folly White. Every year, a Governor's Cup Case is assembled. This year, our own Malbec and Friday's Folly White were chosen as part of the 2014 collection. Again, congratulations to everyone who entered and we hope to try your wines soon! Great job and happy winemaking Colorado!! Cheers!
