We took home 6 medals from the 2015 Jefferson Cup Invitational Wine Competition, including Medals of American Excellence for our Anna Pesä Meritage 2013 and Uncle Ralph’s Rhubarb.

This year’s sixteenth annual invitational was held November 19-20 in Kansas City, Missouri. Known as the “Olympics” of wine competitions, the Jefferson Cup Invitational was founded in 1999 in honor of Thomas Jefferson. Wineries must be invited to participate in the competition and the 2015 participants were chosen based on tastings and competitions throughout America.

We were thrilled to have been among the exclusive few to be invited to compete.

This was the first award for Anna Pesä Meritage 2013 and the eighth award for Uncle Ralph’s Rhubarb. We also received Jefferson Cup Medals of American Merit for our Pink Slip, Anna Pesä Chenin Blanc 2015, Pumpkin Bog and Great Grandma’s Chokecherry Bliss wines.

This is our fourth competition win in 2015, bringing our grand total awards since 2001 to 876. You can find a breakdown of all of our awards here.
