Prairie du Sac, Wis – Wollersheim Winery’s White Riesling received Double Gold, top medal honors at this year’s Indy International Wine Competition, held May 24-25 at Purdue University in Indiana. Wollersheim’s Prairie Fumé, Dry Rosé, and Dry Riesling all received Silver medals at the event, which is the largest scientifically organized and independent wine competition in the United States, according to the Indy International website.
Just the week before, White Riesling and Prairie Fumé both received Gold medals at the 2017 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. That event, considered to be one of the most prestigious in the country, took place May 17-18 and featured 3,002 entries from 991 producers in 17 countries.
“Awards are always a great acknowledgement of the hard work, expertise, and passion we put into each of our wines,” said Wollersheim owner and 13th generation winemaker Philippe Coquard. “Double Gold and Gold are a particular honor, and it feels very satisfying to receive confirmation that our family-crafted wines stand with the best, both nationally and internationally.”
Wollersheim’s White Riesling is a well-balanced wine with floral aromas of jasmine. Prairie Fumé is the most well-known and top-selling Wollersheim wine since its introduction in 1989.
