HUDSON CHATHAM WINERY WINS TWO MORE MEDALS AT 2011 FINGER LAKES INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETION Pitted against wines from around the world, Hudson-Chatham's Empire (Silver) and Baco Noir Old Vines (Bronze) came through with flying colors! Finger Lakes wine competition has record turnout Democrat & Chronicle by Ernest LaMothe Jr. March 27, 2011 Sixty judges working in four-person panels sat around a table discussing a Chardonnay. One group of four wine connoisseurs from four different states began breaking down its oak flavors with enthusiasm and sometimes blunt honesty. Head judge Linda King described one wine as something the nostril would mistake for a burning fire in a smoky cabin and gave it no rating. Another wine, while not her preference, received a good score. "To be a good judge, you have to be able to separate a wine that you wouldn't normally drink yourself but that is well made and deserves an award," said King, a 21-year judge from North Carolina. "You have to be able to remove yourself and your taste from the equation." For the second straight year, the 11th annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition set a record for the number of entries Saturday. At the Rochester Plaza Hotel, a record-breaking 3,259 wines from 788 wineries were entered. The wines came from 19 nations, six Canadian provinces and all 50 states. Last year's entries comprised 3,010 wines from 666 wineries. Dubbed North America's largest charitable wine competition, the two-day event continues today but is not open to the public. Proceeds from the competition and a gala dinner in May go to Camp Good Days and Special Times, dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families battling cancer. "You find it interesting having a conversation with other people about wine, and it's a rarity where one person absolutely loves a wine and another person dislikes it and gives it no rating," said Cheryl Pitti of Canandaigua, judging for the competition for her second year.
