We just got the results from the 14th annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition! Beans Creek proudly brought home a gold medal for Traminette and silver medals for Midnight Sun and Apropos! 3749 wines were entered in the competition. Wineries from 20 countries and all 50 states entered wines. 75 judges did a blind judging. The judges did not see the brand of the wine or where it came from.
It makes us even happier to have participated in this competition knowing that the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition is the most charitable wine competition in the world! 100% of the proceeds from the competition and a Wine Auction Dinner (featuring the award-winning wines from the competition) are donated to Camp Good Days, an organization that provides a camping experience and more for children and adults facing the toughest challenges of life. Children touched by cancer, HIV/AIDS, and violence gather at a recreational facility on beautiful Keuka Lake (Finger Lakes, central NY) to spark new smiles, re-kindle friendships and enjoy a week where they can simply be kids. It's a wonderful organization!
