The 16th annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition was held at the Rochester Holiday Inn, March 24-26, 2017 in Rochester, NY. Known as the world’s largest wine competition to support a charity, it is open to all commercial wineries from all wine-producing countries.
3,077 wines were entered from 621 wineries and 16 countries.
All proceeds from the competition and subsequent events benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and families all over the world, whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life-threatening challenges. Located in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes wine country, the Camp offers residential programs, year-round activities, and events for adults and children.
We are pleased to announce that Sharrott’s Tango, our red blend, was awarded a Gold Medal at this year’s competition. Fan favorites Riesling and Barrel Reserve Chardonnay won Silver. Overall, Sharrott wines won 8 medals!
According to our owner and wine maker, Larry Sharrott II, “Winning a medal at a competition of this caliber is an indication that we are producing quality wines that can stand with any wine in the United States or the World.”
“We are pleased to be recognized by the Finger Lakes International judges for our efforts,” he adds.
