Haven't had enough time to hang out here lately (or even brew much) because I've been focused on Finnviini, the winery my wife & I founded. Wanted to let everyone know it is paying off. Two weeks ago we were awarded our first trophy at a wine competition.
The competition is organized by the union of French winemakers. 3540 commercial wines from 45 countries competed, though almost half the entries were from France. The trophies are the "supreme awards", and were given to the eight highest rated wines.
My wine Vaapukka made from Finnish raspberries became the first berry wine to win a trophy in the history of this competition.
If anyone know a US or Canadian wine importer who might be interested in our wines, PM me.
