A Montgomery business is celebrating after winning its third award in an international wine competition.

Kerry Vale Vineyard has won another award at the prestigious International Wine Challenge 2017. The vineyard won a Commended Award for their 2015 ‘Shropshire Lady’ Dry white wine following two wins last year.

“Typically, the English wine industry is associated with the Southern counties, however, this important award is an accolade for Kerry Vale Vineyard which demonstrates the capability of vineyards and wineries much further north to produce extremely high quality wine,” said owner June Ferguson.

This is a significant result for the family run vineyard who are proud to be producing award winning wine to an international standard. Last year Kerry Vale Vineyard won a silver and Highly commended for two of their still wines. 

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 34th year. The IWC is accepted as the world's finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Commended and Great Value awards).

June added: “This is an exciting time for us and we couldn’t be more delighted to be ranked amongst the top wine producers in the country. This is our third vintage and the second international competition we have entered, so we are thrilled to have won an award. Last year we won 16 national awards which we were very pleased with,  but international recognition is even better! We would like to thank Halfpenny Green Vineyard who make our wine, without them this would not have been possible.”
