Iowa State Fair Best in Show & Double Gold

A Best of Show award was given to Snus Hill Vineyard and Winery for Spinna in the Edelweiss category at the Iowa State Fair 2016.  Spinna also received a Double Gold award.  To achieve the honor of Double Gold status, the wine must be awarded gold by all judges. The competition uses an awards system based on how the wine should be shared. A Gold award means the wine is one you would be “proud to take to a dinner or party.” A Silver award denotes a wine that you would be “proud to serve to friends in your home, ” while a Bronze award signifies a wine that a person “will enjoy drinking at home.”  Boule de Poils, Whisker White, Edelweiss, Catnip, all took home silver awards. The judges selected winners through a blind taste test of 171 wines entered by 30 Iowa wineries. Over 100 wines were given awards.
