Presque Isle Wine Cellars’ 2016 Lake Erie Traminette has been named by the Pennsylvania Wine Society as the Top PA White Wine, placing second overall in the competition, at the Pennsylvania Wine Excellence XVI. In addition, Presque Isle Wine Cellars’ Touriga Nacionale Port was identified as one of the Top 10 Wines in Pennsylvania, and Presque Isle Wine Cellars’ 2013 Eskimo Kisses dessert wine, a customer favorite, earned an Honorable Mention.

Each January, the PA Wine Society hosts this competition, where Pennsylvania’s best wineries submit their best wines, made from vinifera and Chambourcin grapes, for an all-styles battle royale best in show type judging. This year 89 wines were submitted by 22 wineries.

The top scoring wines were announced at the PA Wine Excellence Awards XVI tasting, held January 28th in Harrisburg PA. Attendees had the chance to taste all top 10 scoring wines, as well as 13 honorable mentions. Presque Isle Wine Cellars was presented with a framed certificate acknowledging the 2016 Lake Erie Traminette as the Top White Wine in Pennsylvania.
