DUBLIN — The winners of the 2015 N.C. State Fair Wine Competition have been announced and Lu Mil Vineyard has taken home the gold, as well as four silver and one bronze medals for their Bladen County grown wines.
Winners from the wine competition will be on display in the Education Building throughout the N.C. State Fair from Oct. 15-25.
Taylor Divine, named in honor of the Taylor family, won a gold medal but it was not their only wine to place in the winning categories.
Silver finalists included Cape Owen Red, Harmony Hall, Sir Walter Raleigh and Bladen Blush — with Old Cumberland finishing with a bronze.
“Our perfect soil and climate play an integral role in producing the best wines. We believe that wine is made in the field and we are very proud of our wines and the experience that Lu Mil Vineyard offers its visitors,” says Denise Taylor Bridgers. “We offer free wine tastings, golf cart rentals, Vineyard Cabins for overnight stays, event venues, educational tours and a beautiful place to kick back and relax for an afternoon or an entire weekend.”
Lu Mil Vineyard is located between Fayetteville and Wilmington just off Hwy. 87 in Dublin. The gift shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m. For information, visit www.lumilvineyard.com or call 910-866-5819.
