Boordy Vineyard Named "Best in Class"

Hydes, Maryland (May 22, 2013) – Winners of the 2012 Maryland Winemasters Choice Awards were recently announced by the Maryland Wine Association. Boordy Vineyards' Seyval Chardonnay Vidal 2011 took "Best in Class" for a white blend. 

2012 Winemasters Choice Awards

Each year, Maryland winemakers have the opportunity to taste, critique, and rate their own and others' wines in a blind tasting called the Winemasters Choice Awards. The wine is judged strictly by its color, aroma, taste, mouth-feel, and finish. Vintners can find the best wines in Maryland using this unbiased evaluation.

"I am thrilled that one of the County's wineries is receiving this outstanding recognition," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "Baltimore County is truly a special place with so much to offer. With an honor like this, everyone will realize what Baltimore County residents already know!"


In addition to the "Best in Class" category, medals were awarded in gold, silver, and bronze. Boordy took two gold, four silver, and five bronze medals for various wines, varietals, and blends. Royal Rabbit Vineyards, also in Baltimore County, was awarded two bronze medals for Chatelaine 2011 and Viscount 2010.
