January 15, 2013 (Indianapolis, IN) - Easley Winery is proud to announce a gold medal win for its locally-made Traminette varietal wine at the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Easley Winery, located in downtown Indy since 1974, garnered a gold medal with its 2010 Michigan Riesling last year at this prestigious event and is excited to bring home another gold medal for Indiana's signature wine.
"We love this wine!" Meredith Easley of Easley Winery states. "We are thrilled and honored to receive this award!"
"We were humbled to win a gold with Traminette in three 2012 competitions, and after this amazing award, we're looking forward to a prosperous 2013," added Mark Easley, winery owner, added.
Easley Winery has been no stranger to the award circuit, garnering 14 awards of gold or higher in competitions across the country in 2012, four of which came from California events.
The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is billed as the largest wine competition in America. With over 4,000 entries from across the country, a team of 60 industry experts are selected to judge various categories of wine from dry to sweet. Proceeds from the event go to support wine and food education at various educational institutions across California. The event organizers will hold a public tasting for all gold medal-winning wines on February 16 from 2-5 pm at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.

Easley Traminette boasts bold floral aromas and fresh citrus flavors. This semi-dry style of Traminette is a delicious complement to Indiana pork tenderloin and should be served chilled. Traminette was adopted as Indiana's signature wine in 2009 and continues to grow in popularity. Easley Traminette can be found at Indiana Meijer locations, select Indiana Marsh and packaged liquor locations, as well as Easley Winery in downtown Indianapolis.
