Swedish Hill Winery is honored to announce that it won ten medals at Jerry Mead’s New World International Wine Competition (NWIWC) this week, including a “Best Varietal” and “Best of Class” and a gold medal for their Cynthia Marie Port. Swedish Hill also won a gold medal, six silver, and two bronze.

nwiwclogoEstablished in 1991, the NWIWC takes place in Claremont, California and is the only competition in the United States where the best wines from each price category are judged against each other in a double-blind tasting to determine an overall best of variety or type. This year’s competition awarded 192 wineries from across the world.

The Cynthia Marie Port, named after the winery’s co-founder Cynthia Peterson, is a multi vintage, oak aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Lemberger, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This premium port also won a gold medal at the 2013 Indy International and is available for tasting and purchase at Swedish Hill’s Romulus and Saratoga Springs tasting rooms.

Other Swedish Hill medalists from the NWIWC include (Gold) Spumante Blush; silver for 2013 Riesling, 2013 Blue Waters Riesling, 2013 Blue Waters Gewürztraminer, Blanc de Blanc, 2012 Cabernet Franc, and 2012 Optimus; bronze for Naturel, and 2012 Cabernet Franc Lemberger.
