Oct 8, 2021 | Featured, News & Noteworthy, Reviews

We are thrilled to announce that our very own Fred Merwarth- Co-Owner & Head Winemaker- has been nominated for the Wine Enthusiast Magazine Winemaker of the Year Award. The magazine writes of the award, “This year marks the 22nd anniversary of Wine Enthusiast’s Annual Wine Star Awards, honoring the individuals and companies that make outstanding contributions to the wine and alcohol beverage world. Winners will be announced on winemag.com Thursday, November 11, 2021, and appear in the special “Best of Year” December 31 issue, as well as be honored at our annual black-tie gala on Monday, February 7, 2022. The selection process for nominees begins with company-wide submissions and is gradually narrowed down to the final nominees.

This is the first time that Merwarth has been nominated for this award and the first time that a New York Winemaker has been nominated. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard was nominated in 2020 for the Wine Enthusiast Magazine Wine Star “American Winery of the Year” award.
