AWARDS & ACCOLADES

New York's Winning Wines ...

... a compilation of accolades for New York wines. Whether it is a medal earned in national and international competitions, a high score from industry publications, or other form of recognition we like to share the good news. We feel it is important to let everyone know how well wine experts receive New York's wines.

Several wine consumer publications use a 100-point numerical system to rate wines, usually by one person (as opposed to panels of judges in competitions), with scores of 90 and above roughly equivalent to Gold and Double Gold medals in competitions. The New York wines with such scores are listed here from Wine & Spirits, Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator and Other Publications.

Be sure to check the list of medal winners and watch the space below for other commentary on New York's increasing treasury of accolades.
