Stinson 2017 Meritage Makes 2022 Gov’s Cup Case

Governor Glenn Youngkin presented this year’s Governor’s Cup award to Melanie Natoli of Cana Vineyards in Middleburg, VA for her 2019 Unité Reserve. The remaining 11 wines in the Virginia Governor’s Cup Case include Stinson Vineyards’ 2017 Meritage and are a collection of the competition’s 12 highest scoring wines.

According to Governor Youngkin, “The 40th anniversary of the competition saw the most diverse selection of award-winning wines to date, demonstrating the passion and experimental spirit of Virginia driving our wine industry to new heights”.

The Virginia Governor’s Cup Case includes a variety of styles and represents three leading wine regions across the Commonwealth: Central Virginia, Northern Virginia and Shenandoah Valley. Seven wines in the case are meritage, Bordeaux-style blends—wines that balance the subtlety of the Old World with the boldness of the new, embodying Virginia’s unique place in the world. Elegant, expressive white varietals also tell the story of this year’s competition with Chardonnay, Vermentino, Albariño, sparkling and a dessert rounding out the case.
