Posted by wlpo on June 26, 2014

The next time you buy a local bottle of wine, it might be award winning. The judges at the 2014 Illinois State Fair Wine competition this month were good to two local brands.

Illinois Sparkling Company won Best of Show for their Franken’s French Hybrid Brut. Their Dollface Rose also won the Governor’s Cup Rose category.

Mark Wenzel owns Illinois Sparking Company and August Hill Winery in Utica. His August Hill brand earned the Governor’s Cup White with their Vignoles.  They also won recognition in the Label and Packaging competition.
