The French Broad Vignerons provided the judges for the Asheville Wine and Food Festival Amateur Wine Makers Contest. We had a table at the festival to display the wines entered and the ribbons won, and there we completed our judging of the entries, a task which we had started earlier during the week. Thanks to all the members who turned out to help judge, pour and organize the judging session.

There was one gold medal winner. That was our president, Alan Stanton, who made a very nice sweet blend of viogner and petit manseng. That is Alan in the picture above with wearing the red shirt.
