And The Winner Is…

The 23rd Annual Pinehurst Food and Wine Festival is winding down today. This year’s festival was hugely successful by any standards. It was a sold out event with great wine, great food and great entertainment.

The Festival kicked off Friday, September 2 with a wine tasting & competition where the guests served as judges, scoring wine in ten different categories: Premium and Prestige Chardonnay, Premium and Prestige Pinot Grigio, Premium and Prestige Pinot Noit, Premium and Prestige Cabernet Sauvignon, Prestige Organic Chardonnay, and Prestige Organic Pinot Noir. Premium (less than $20 retail) and Prestige (wines that were greater than $20 retail). The medals were not categorized as gold, silver and bronze, but rather as medals of distinction and recognition.
