Whitecliff Vineyards & Demerest Hill Winery Bring Medals Back to Hudson Valley

The International Eastern Wine Competition 2014, combined with the East Meets West Challenge, once again yielded some impressive results for New York wines--144 medals for New York state including 7 Double Gold, 23 Gold, 78 Silver, and 36 Bronze awards, plus 8 Best of Class and 2 Best of Show designations, reported the New York Wine and grape Foundation. It is considered the ultimate taste-off between top wines from the IEWC and concurrent West Coast Wine Competition, both sponsored by Vineyard & Winery Management magazine.
