Silver Coast Winery Garners Multiple Awards
At Pacific Rim Wine Competition and the
23rd Annual Tasters Guild International

Silver Coast WineryJune 1, 2010 – Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina (NC) - Silver Coast Winery has been honored with two extraordinary accolades at this year’s annual Pacific Rim Wine Competition held at the National Orange Show Events Center in Southern California and the Tasters Guild International, a Wine and Food Appreciation Society based in Grand Rapids, Michigan held at the Secchia Institute of Culinary Education.

The first was a Silver Medal awarded to our 2008 vintage of Viognier; a crisp and elegant white wine, with nuances of jasmine, honeysuckle and white peach. The second wine of note was our 2006 vintage of Touriga. This beautiful, earthy, Bordeaux style red wine was awarded not only a Gold Medal, it was also chosen as best in its class. This marks the first Double Gold Award for this vintage of Touriga, and Silver Coast’s wine maker Dana Keeler said, “I expect continuing recognition for this vintage of Touriga”. The Pacific Rim Wine Competition has been setting standards for the judging of fine wines since 1985.

Silver Coast Winery’s 2007 Cabernet Franc, produced from grapes grown exclusively in North Carolina garnered a Silver Medal at the 23rd Annual Tasters Guild International competing with 2,200 wines from 10 countries and 32 states/provinces. This wine offers intriguing aromas of blueberries, dried leaves and cedar which leads to complex flavors of ripe black plum and cherries.

Silver Coast Winery is a full winemaking facility housing an eclectic art gallery, two unique gift shops, and beautiful picnic grounds. Tours and tastings take place Monday through Saturday from 11 am – 5pm and on Sundays from 12pm – 4pm.
