The Appellation America Best-of-Appellation Evaluation Program is an on-going process of identifying the wines in each appellation which best express the character of the appellation and the quality of wine craftsmanship in the region. 

The Award winning wines from this evaluation, along with the tasting notes for each, appear on the respective Best of Appellation Wine List, where they will be featured as wines defining the quality and character of the Lehigh Valley American Viticultural Area as long as the product stays current on the winery’s in-stock list. 

Taste these and other ward-winning wines during a weekend trip to the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and during our March Madness event.
