SHERIDAN - Well-respected wine writer, Dan Berger, has included Liberty Vineyards Noiret as one of just 100 wines selected to represent the United States at the Six Nations Wine Challenge to be held in August in Sydney, Australia. The U.S. will go up against other New World wine-producing nations including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and Argentina. The Six Nations Wine Challenge is the only wine show in the world where the wines come in exclusively by invitation from the judges.
Bob Campbell MW of New Zealand, chairman of the challenge, explained, "Because the wines are all pre selected by each of the judges, the standard of wine quality must surely be higher than any competition of this size in the world."
Bethany Margolis, marketing and events manager at Liberty Vineyards said the winery is very pleased with the selection. "Noiret is one of our most popular dry red wines. It has a nice black pepper characteristic which makes it one of our favorites with steak or bleu cheese. We are thrilled that it was chosen for this honor."
Liberty Vineyards & Winery is a small, family-owned winery producing over 20 wines in a variety of styles.
It is located at 2861 Route 20 in Sheridan and is open for tastings and sales Mon-day through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit www.libertywinery.com for more information.
