Train Wreck Winery is proud to announce Orphan Train and Gandy Dancer received recognition at the 2014 Consumer Wine Awards in Lodi, California. The goals of the Consumer Wine Awards are to provide wineries an opportunity to showcase their wines with other wines from around the world to independent, sophisticated wine consumers.
This year Train Wreck Winery went up against a lot of well-known and amazing wineries and came away with a Gold Medal for Orphan Train. Orphan Train is a semi-sweet blush wine made from Frontenac Gris (gree) grapes and has tropical and peach flavors.
Our Gandy Dancer earned a Bronze Medal and is a semi-sweet white wine made with Seyval Blanc grapes and is a delicious wine with notes of pineapple, stone fruit and lovely fruity aromas.
Join us in wishing our winemaker congratulations for another successful competition and we hope you continue to enjoy our wines.
You can find Train Wreck Winery wines at these fine retailers and at the winery.
