The Maryland Wineries Association announced the winners of the 26th Annual Maryland Governor's Cup Competition for 2014. The judging for the prestigious awards took place Aug. 17 in Timonium with over twenty wine experts from the region who tasted more than 100 different wines, including sparkling, whites, roses and reds. The gold medal-winning wines competed for Best in Class and Best in Show honors. Bordeleau Vineyard & Winery won the Governor's Cup Best in Show for its Cabernet Sauvignon Amarone Style 2012, a wine that is made from 100 percent estate Cabernet and produced with partially dried grapes in the Italian tradition. The grapes were grown at Bordeleau's vineyard in Eden, Wicomico County, south of Salisbury. This is the first time that the Governor's Cup "Best in Show" has been awarded to a winery from Maryland's Eastern Shore.
