Our 2014 Marquette red wine was awarded a silver medal at the New York International Wine Competition and Fisher King was named the 2015 Wisconsin Winery of the Year.
This international competition welcomed close to 1000 submissions from the United States and over 30 countries from all over the world. It is the only major international wine competition to be judged solely by trade buyers. Each wine is judged by its category and retail price.
This highly selective competition awards relatively few medals to only the top producers in each category.
Held in Midtown Manhattan earlier this month, this year’s impressive judging panel included buyers from top retail stores, sommeliers, distributors, and importers. The judges were excited by the high quality of known wines submitted as well as the large number of new wines looking to break into the New York market and the United States as well.
All wines are judged in a blind tasting method and are sampled for appearance, aroma, taste, mouth feel, and finish. Each judging panel confers together to come to a unanimous decision. The judges make their decisions knowing that their peers (other trade buyers in New York and throughout the world) will also be making real buying decisions based upon the medals awarded at this particular competition.
