Primary tabs

Congratulations are in order for Maryland's Boordy Vineyard’s Cabernet Franc Reserve 2010 winning “Best of Show” at the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association. Boordy Vineyard and winemaking teams take the top honors at the prestigious Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition, a judging held annually in Virginia that focuses upon wines grown in the states that border the Atlantic.  All entries must be made exclusively from grapes grown within this region.


The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association (ASWA) is one of the oldest wine organizations located on the East Coast. Established in 1973 as the Vinifera Wine Growers Association (VWGA), it was an early supporter of planting world-class Vinifera wine grapes, the production of quality commercial wines, and the building of a wine industry along the Eastern seaboard.


Some Details on the Event:

The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association has completed its 9th annual wine competition in Haymarket, VA at The Regency at Dominion Valley Country and Golf Club. The competition covers the 17 states from Maine to Florida that border the Atlantic including Vermont, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The number of wineries in this year’s competition was 116. The number of wines were 588, the largest number ever. Wineries from twelve states on the Atlantic seaboard were represented in the competition: DE, GA, NH, MA, MD, NC, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA, and VT. A panel of 20 judges from CA, FL, GA, LA, MD, NC, NJ, NY, RI, and VA judged the wines.


The Association holds an award ceremony on Capitol Hill each year after the completion of the competition under the auspices of the Congressional Wine Caucus

Boordy will be presented with the Jefferson Cup – a silver trophy that the winner keeps for a year - at a ceremony on Capitol Hill on September 18th.
