Flickerwood Wine Cellars Wins in VA Competition

Charlottesville, VA – The second annual “Drink Outside the Grape” competition took place in Charlottesville, VA on August 9, resulting in 95 medals for fruit wines, meads, ciders & fruit brandies.

Drink Outside the Grape is a truly International Competition, with entries from the U.S., Canada, Estonia, & India. “Beverages in these categories are often misunderstood or not given the same respect as is given to traditional table wines,” explains Richard Leahy, Competition Chair & Conference Manager of the Eastern Winery Exposition. “This competition gives fruit wine, mead, cider, & fruit brandies a place where they can be judged fairly without being compared to traditional graped-based table wines. The growth in this competition shows that producers of these beverages want to get the word out about the good products they are making.”

FLICKERWOOD WINE CELLARS of Kane, PA won medals with all 6 of their entries: The Competition was judged by industry professionals from a varity of specialties.

*BRUISER (BLACKberry & BLUEberry Blend) Double Gold & Best Fruit Wine

*PINEAPPLE GIRL (All Pineapple) Gold

*STRAWBERRY FIELDS (Strawberry & Ruhbarb Blend) Gold

*FLICKERBERRY DEW (Red Raspberry & Blackberry Blend) Silver

*CRANBERRY (All Cranberry) Bronze

*PEAR (All Pear) Bronze

Winemaker Rick Zampogna states that all of FWC wines including their fruit wines are crafted without water & artificial flavorings, which in his opinion, account for the success of the winery in this competition.

Pulitzer Prize Winner Dan Barry at Chautauqua @ Chautauqua Institution, Hall of Philosphy
Aug 17 @ 3:30 pm
Pulitzer Prize Winner Dan Barry at Chautauqua @ Chautauqua Institution, Hall of Philosphy | Mayville | New York | United States

The Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle earlier this month announced the addition of The Boys in the Bunkhouse: Servitude and Salvation in the Heartland by Dan Barry as its latest 2017 selection, adding a unique facet to Week Eight’s exploration of “Media and the News: Ethics in the Digital Age.” Barry will present his work at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17, in the Hall of Philosophy.

A Dickensian tale from America’s heartland, The Boys in the Bunkhouse is the harrowing yet uplifting story of the exploitation and abuse of a resilient group of men with intellectual disability, and the heroic efforts of those who helped them to find justice and reclaim their lives. Pulitzer Prize winner Barry also writes the much-lauded “This Land” column for The New York Times. Click here to read more about the book and its author.
