The students at Yakima Valley College’s Teaching Winery, Yakima Valley Vintners, won eight awards at the 2017 Tri-Cities Wine Festival.
The 2015 Intern Tempranillo won a gold medal, while several other vintages took home silver medals.
All wines submitted were judged blindly by a panel of prominent wine professionals. There were more than 70 wineries that competed this year, and 373 wines were judged over a three day period.
YVC Vineyard and Winery Technology Instructor Trent Ball said, “The students are the decision makers on the wine style and blending methods. These awards affirm their commitment and dedication to their craft.”
