2021 Rosé, 2020 Chardonnay, 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2019 Pinot Noir are all recognized by the distinguished association of top sommeliers and on-premise wine buyers

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fresh Vine Wine, Inc. (NYSE American: VINE), the premier producer of lower carb, lower sugar, and lower calorie premium wines in the United States, today announced that four of its vintage wines have received prestigious 2022 Sommeliers Choice Awards.

“We are grateful that four of our vintage wines are recipients of the prestigious Sommeliers Choice Awards for 2022,” said Jamey Whetstone, Winemaker, of Fresh Vine Wine. “This recognition builds on the critical acclaim our wines have already received from world-renowned wine critic James Suckling, highly-regarded publications such as The Tasting Panel Magazine and The Somm Journal, as well as at TEXSOM’s global wine competition. These awards affirm Fresh Vine Wines’ position as the leader in delivering a superior wine taste in a well-balanced, lower-sugar wine, offering an affordable luxury targeting the fast-growing ‘healthy living’ market.”

Fresh Vine Wine 2020 Chardonnay received a Gold 2022 Sommeliers Choice Award, with Fresh Vine Wine 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon and Fresh Vine Wine 2021 Rosé, both taking home the Silver and Pinot Noir Bronze.

The judging panel of the Sommeliers Choice Awards consists entirely of top sommeliers, on-premise wine buyers and wine directors at U.S. restaurants, bars, pubs, and clubs. Medals are awarded to wines that meet very specific judging criteria, with a goal of identifying wines that should become additions to restaurant wine lists.
