March 1, 2014

Chateau Grand Traverse won Double Gold and Best of Class medals at the 2014 International Eastern Wine Competition last week for its 2012 Pinot Grigio, along with eight other awards for its wines. The competition, established in 1975, is one of the oldest and largest in the country and is open to all wines produced in the Eastern United States.

Other awards Chateau Grand Traverse earned at the competition included:

2012 Whole Cluster Riesling – Silver
2012 Late Harvest Riesling – Silver
2012 Late Harvest Chardonnay – Silver
2012 Semidry Riesling – Silver
2012 Dry Riesling – Silver
2011 Edelzwicker – Silver
2012 Ship of Fools – Bronze
2012 Gamay Noir – Bronze

The winery's 2012 Pinot Grigio is the number-one selling Pinot Grigio in the state marketplace, described as having "bright acidity...beautiful mineral qualities...with wonderful fruit aromas with an herbaceous style."

"We are primarily known for high-quality Riesling wines," Chateau Grand Traverse, President Eddie O'Keefe said of the winery's awards in a statement. "However, Pinot Grigio holds great promise for a leading Michigan grape variety, and this competition confirms our efforts."
