Ohio’s Director of Agriculture honors Ferrante’s Golden Bunches Wine with prestigious award

The Ohio Wine and Agricultural Industry has rapidly grown over the past decade, and created quite the buzz for quality wines. The agriculture and foodindustry is the number one industry in Ohio, adding more than $98 billion to the economy each year.

More than 20 wines-10 white, 7 reds and 3 specialty/dessert wines were evaluated by a blind panel of judges, for the highly coveted award. Judges have very high standards that all wine must meet in order to receive the prestigious award. Points are based on the wine's appearance, aroma/bouquet, taste/texture, aftertaste and overall impression. All of the Director’s Choice award recipients have already received the Ohio Quality Wine designation.  Wine must also be produced 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.

Ferrante’s received the prestigious award for their: 2012 Ferrante’s Grand River Valley Grand River Valley Golden Bunches Dry Riesling.  The 2012 growing season was challenging.  “An early bud break in March created a challenging growing season, however the long growing season allowed for some of the best vintages we have ever seen,” explains Wine Maker Nicholas Ferrante.

Ferrante’s was also honored to receive multiple awards at the 2013 Ohio Wine Competition, including Best of Show White Wine award for their 2012 Grand River Valley Vidal Blanc.  Ferrante’s 2012 Grand River Valley Vidal Blanc Ice Wine also won a Double Gold medal at the competition.  Ferrante’s came home with an additional five gold medals, and eight silver medals.  The Ohio Wine competition is an annual wine competition coordinated by The Ohio State University’s Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center & the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Ohio Grape Industries Committee.

Ferrante’s is one of Ohio’s largest family operated wineries and continues to win prestigious awards for their quality wines. The Ohio wine growing industry is a major component of Ohio’s economic success and with quality wine programs the impact will continue to expand. 

Be sure to plan a visit to the Grand River Valley this summer to sample these quality wines.  Visit our website for a list of Ferrante’s latest award winning wines. www.FerranteWinery.com.
