Each January the Pa. Wine Society showcases the best Pennsylvania wines made from vinifera and Chambourcin grapes. The wines are judged by the Board with the able assistance of Gary Pavlis, from Rutgers University who is also a teacher of the wine judging certification course for the American Wine Society. The top scoring wines are presented at the tasting, where we also give our annual award plaque to the winery that has made the top scoring wine. The plaque is proudly displayed at the winery for the rest of the year. The event is open to the public, and we recommend that you register early.
