Amy LaBelle, winemaker and co-owner of the winery said, “These awards are a testament to our unwavering dedication to producing high-quality, distinct and enjoyable wines that stand out in a crowded market.” 

Boston Wine Awards’ judging process emphasizes quality, diversity and a commitment to storytelling through wine. Award-winning wines are chosen by panels of industry leaders in blind tastings, determining which entries are worthy of platinum, gold, silver or bronze ratings. Entries that receive a gold rating from all judges on a panel earn a platinum award. On the final day of the competition, platinum and gold winners advance to a sweepstakes round where Best of Class and Best in Show winners are determined.

Raye Bouschet, executive director and co-founder of the Boston Wine Competition said, “Our competition celebrates wines that capture the essence of art and science in the glass, from vine to bottle. This competition not only analyzes quality, but places emphasis on what differentiates [a wine] from the pack.”
