Our estate-grown, 2018 Chardonnay won Double Gold or "Best of Class" at this year's New York Wine Classic for "Best Unoaked Chardonnay". This is one of the most prestigious awards a wine can win at this annual event, and is one of the highest honors that Toro Run has had since we began submitting.
We had six other wines take home Bronze medals in other categories, rounding out a total of seven awards at this year's awards. Our winners are:
2017 Cabernet Franc
Late Harvest Riesling
The New York Wine Classic took place on August 5th – 7th in Watkins Glen, NY and included 883 entries from 113 wineries from across the state. From the press release:
