Pennsylvania Wine Excellence - Top 10 PA Wines

Founded in 1987, the Pennsylvania Wine Society is a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to help members learn about the wine making process, how to select and enjoy fine wines, and the art of combining food and wine. PWS’s philosophy is that “life is too short to drink bad wine.”

Each January the PA Wine Society showcases the best Pennsylvania wines made from vinifera and Chambourcin grapes. The wines are judged by the Board with the able assistance of Gary Pavlis, from Rutgers University, who is also a teacher of the wine judging certification course for the American Wine Society. The top ten scoring wines are honored with inclusion in "The Top Ten" and the next ten are honored with inclusion in "The Honorable Mentions" group. The Top Ten are presented at the tasting where an award plaque is presented to the top scoring wine.
