The ribbons finally arrived.
It was another blue ribbon year for the RootsLiving wine cellar.
This time the chardonnay we made in the fall of 2012 took top prize in the chardonnay category at the Topsfield Fair. The Malbec we made in the spring of 2012 with grapes from Chile won third prize and received a white ribbon.
This was the second time we entered this contest. The first time in 2009, we won first prize for Zinfandel we made in the fall of 2008.
The ribbons arrived just a few weeks ago: better late than never. And although it’s nice to talk and write about wine, I’d rather drink it. Hic!
