YNN Announces Baldwin and Old Chatham Win NY State Fair Wine & Cheese Pairing 2013!

Surprising pair wins wine and cheese competition               
NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- Fairgoers got a taste of what New York State has to offer when it comes to wine and cheese.

A competition for the best pairing of the two items was held on Saturday at the Chevy Court pavilion. The first place prize went to Baldwin Vineyards for their Strawberry Wine paired with the Old Chatham Sheepherding Company's Camembert cheese.

The New York Wine and Grape Foundation President said he was surprised by the winning combination, but not because of its excellent taste.

"Fruit wines generally don't pair well with cheeses, or with other foods for that matter. But the Camembert Cheese from Old Chatham, also from the Hudson Valley, was just perfect. And we finally got to that match and it was a match made in heaven. It was unbelievable," said Jim Trezise, New York Wine and Grape Foundation President.

Congrats to the folks at Baldwin Vineyards!!!!
