Philippe Coquard, owner and winemaker at Wollersheim Winery

Any time a Midwestern winery can gain any top honor at a major, national wine competition it really should be big news. After visiting Wisconsin’s Wollersheim Winery early last year, I”m not surprised.

While the San Diego International Wine Competition is not a head turner, it is an international affair with 12 countries and nearly 2000 wines. Wollersheim was named winery of the year and won six awards. Read about it here.

Check out my blog entry from the day I visited Wollersheim with this link. And this link for the story I wrote and was published on Plate Press – The National Online Wine Magazine about Wisconsin wine. That story includes a short video clip and several comments from Philippe Coquard, owner and winemaker at Wollersheim.

UPDATE: Just found a story from the Sauk Prairie Eagle, Wollersheim’s hometown newspaper, about the honors. Read it here.
