Hosmer Riesling Receives Recognition at Canberra

For the second year in a row, Hosmer Wine is among the winners!Ovid, NY, Monday, November 9 – Hosmer 2008 Riesling received a Silver Medal in Australia at the Canberra International Riesling Challenge. The 2008 Riesling scored a solid 52 out of 60 points. All in all, three NY Rieslings were awarded Silver Medals in Australia at one of the world’s most challenging competitions.The Challenge attracted 512 entries from Australia, Germany, New Zealand, the USA, South Africa and Austria. It is internationally recognized and one of the largest events of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. According to Jim Tresize of the NY Wine and Grape Foundation, “The Challenge in Australia is arguably the world’s toughest competition, so Silvers and Bronzes are comparable to Gold and Silver medals elsewhere.” In October of 2008, Hosmer 2007 Riesling and 2007 Vintner’s Reserve Riesling were recognized as two of the top ten Rieslings produced in the USA at the Ninth Annual Canberra International Riesling Challenge, held in Australia. “This repeat recognition at this prestigious international competition is an incredible honor and reinforces the fact that the quality of our Riesling and those of the entire Finger Lakes Region has been unrecognized and underestimated.” said Cameron Hosmer.Hosmer Winery has been producing wine grapes along Route 89 on the west shore of Cayuga Lake since 1972; established in 1985 it has been producing consistent award winning wines ever since.
