SHERIDAN - Liberty Vineyards & Winery, of Sheridan, earned a Chairman's Award and Best of Class for its very popular "Reds, Whites & Blues" wine at the recent Riverside International Wine Competition held in Riverside, Calif.
"We are very happy that Reds, Whites, & Blues, one of our most popular wines, received this recognition. Reds, Whites & Blues is a sweet rose wine that is always a hit. It is delicious by itself, and many of our customers love to make it into a refreshing sparkling sangria during the summer months," Beth Margolis, marketing and events manager, said.
Liberty also received silver medals for its Fredonia and Riesling wines and a bronze medal for its Purple Haze wine.
In addition to the medals earned at the Riverside competition, the winery also came home with a number of awards from the Taster's Guild International Wine Judging held in Grand Rapids, MI. At the Taster's Guild competition, Liberty received a Gold medal for its Purple Haze wine.
"Purple Haze is a fun wine made from Concord grapes. It is sweet and grapey and perfect for enjoying with friends," Margolis said.
