Aurora, CO (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Scovil Wines and Meadery, best known for making handcrafted wines and meads inspired by the season’s finest ingredients, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Gold Medal and Best of Show/Meadmaker of Year Award in the 2011 National Homebrew Competition (NHC) competition for its 2010 Apricot/Plum Mead.
The National Homebrew Competition (NHC) is the world's largest international competition recognizing the most outstanding homebrewed beer, mead, and cider produced by amateur brewers worldwide. Ron Scovil, president comments: “We are very pleased to have our wines recognized by the judges at this prestigious competition. We are especially excited about winning a gold medal for our 2010 Apricot/Plum Mead - aptly named Adore - as this wine captures the essence of fruit at season’s peak. The fruit for this wine comes from Rosendahl Farms, a farm in San Joaquin Valley that is farmed using sustainable practices and having the richest tasting fruit.”
Scovil Wines was also awarded Best of Show in the 2011 Mazer Cup International Amateur Mead Competition for its 2010 Strawberry Passion Fruit Mead Ren-Ai – making this the third year in a row that its wines have won Best of Show awards in amateur wine/mead competitions.
After three years of perfecting technique and wine recipes and over 72 medals in national and international competitions as validation, Scovil Wines will become Summit Wines a commercial winery with plans of opening in its hometown Aurora, Colorado this coming fall.
