2019 Governor’s Cup Results

Three Valley Road Vineyards red wines added some medal to the winery’s award cabinet.

VRV’s 2014 Meritage and 2015 Meritage each received a Silver Medal in the 2019 Virginia Governor’s Cup Awards, announced February 26, 2019. The immensely popular Torn Curtain also received a Silver Medal.

The 2019 Virginia Governor’s Cup was presented at a Gala Tuesday evening, February 26, at the Main Street Station in Richmond, Virginia. Now in its 36th year, the competition is a result of a partnership among the gubernatorial-appointed Virginia Wine Board (VWB), the Virginia Vineyards Association (VVA), and the Virginia Wineries Association (VWA), which owns and manages the competition. Any wine made from 100 percent Virginia fruit was eligible for the competition, while ciders and fruit wines had their own category and medalists. All entries included an affidavit with a certification of 100 percent Virginia fruit and vineyard particulars, including grower names and location.
