Five wines win Ohio Quality award


Five wines grown in Ohio recently won the right to call themselves among the best in the state in a tasting held to promote the state’s wine industry.

More than 30 wines were evaluated by a panel of judges at an event held by the Ohio Department of Agriculture for retailers, distributors, restaurateurs and winery owners.

The 2014 Director’s Choice award recipients are:

White Wine (Tie): 2012 Firelands Barrel Select Chardonnay

2012 Ferrante Signature Grand River Valley Riesling

Red Wine (Tie): 2012 Valley Vineyards (South Lebanon) Cabernet Franc

2012 Valley Vineyards Syrah

Specialty Wine: 2012 Ferrante Vidal Blanc Ice Wine

All of the Director’s Choice award recipients are eligible for the Ohio Quality Wine designation. It was created in 2007 by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee and is assigned to wines made from at least 90 percent Ohio-grown grapes. These wines must also achieve at least 15 of 20 points on a sensory evaluation and pass a chemical analysis before receiving the quality seal.
