Below is a partial list of awards, or industry praise, many of our member wineries have received the past few years. Thank you to the New York Wine and Grape Foundation and Jim Tresize for their weekly emails which provided the bulk of this information. Please know that we have several member wineries that submit their wines to very few if any competitions, and therefore have fewer medals, but that in no way necessarily reflects the quality of their wine at all. Usually, in fact, it means they're a relatively small winery, where the owner(s) do literally everything from the vineyard to the bottle, and simply lack the time/resources to submit wines to as many competitions as they might prefer. For those visitors, however, that are fans of particular grapes, or style of wine, this list can be helpful in winnowing down the list of wineries you want to visit. If, for example, you're a big fan of the Merlot grape you can perform a search of this long page for that grape, and quickly identify at least some of those wineries that have made some award-winning Merlot wines the past few years.
