Amateur Wine Competition

We will again hold our Anthony Massari Memorial Amateur Wine Competition—start selecting your favorite vintages ! ! ! The entry deadline is Friday July 31st ! ! !

In addition to the competition, we will again this year have a "get-together" after the awards are announced to allow all the winemakers to meet each other, taste the wines of other winemakers, and discuss their wine/grappa making techniques. While only one bottle must be entered for the competition, those winemakers who submit two bottles—one to be used for judging and the other for the get-together—will be eligible to taste the other winemakers’ wine. We encourage you to place your regular wine label on the second bottle. Prior to the Festa, those that will participate in the get-together will receive name tags in the mail that will allow them entry to the tasting. The winners will be announced at approx. 2:30, immediately followed by the get-together.

Spread the word ! ! !  Make sure all your friends enter ! ! !

Help keep the tradition of home winemaking alive ! ! !

In 2007, Vandergrift lost one of its most generous winemakers—Anthony Massari.  Anthony never hesitated when it came to sharing his knowledge of the "how to's" and "what if's" of wine making that he had learned from the "old timers" who, themselves, have long passed away.  It is in his spirit and sharing of the winemaking tradition that we have named our competition.

Remember, any wine that you like is good wine, and any wine that you make and share with family and friends tastes even better ! ! !

Here's a picture of the medals given to the winners in years past:
