Silver Medal Award – 2018 Harvest Challenge

Double Gold Winner 2018 Western Carolina Wine Competition

Gold Medal Winner 2018 Mid-Atlantic Southeastern 2018 Wine Competition

Platinum Medal Winner 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition

95 Points! (Less than 1% of all the wines submitted from around the globe scored 95 points or higher)

“At the Winemaker Challenge, we have judges who not only know but appreciate native grapes. They showed their appreciation for this Cynthiana — also known as Norton — by tagging it with a Platinum award. Aromas of black fruit and clay entice, and the black fruit carries the palate with good grip and notes of citrus and brown spice. One of the best wines I’ve tasted from this variety. It sounds like a road trip is in order. A Platinum Award winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.”
– Rich Cook | 2018 Winemaker Challenge Judge | Jan 30, 2018

“North Carolina’s Jolo Winery 2016 Pilot Fog ($29) was named Best Native American Red (the grape is Norton) at $29. I might prefer the V. Sattui 2013 Morisoli Vineyard cabernet sauvignon, the wine of the year, but the far less expensive Norton from the obscure Yadkin River Valley of North Carolina could hold its own in just about any company.”

– Robert Whitley | “Lessons From the 2018 Winemaker Challenge” | February 13, 2018
