NOVEMBER, 2019 – On November 4, 2019 Sparkling Pointe Vintners Tom and Cynthia Rosicki attended the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships Award Dinner at Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London to accept two Best of Class Awards for the 2016 Topaz Impérial Brut Rosé and 2014 Reserve Blanc de Blancs; ultimately winning a National Champion Trophy for the Reserve Blanc de Blancs.
9 World Champions, 14 National Champions, 11 Regional Champions, Tony Jordan Rising Star Award and the Chairman’s Trophy were all presented at this global ‘who’s who’ gathering of over 200 international winemakers, producers and journalists.
Through a totally blind tasting process, the best wines receive Silver and Gold Medals. Once awarded a Gold Medal, wines advance to compete for the prestigious Best in Class Awards, National, and World Trophys. This is the second big win for Sparkling Pointe at the CSWWC, having received Best in Class for the 2015 Topaz Impérial Brut Rosé just last year. This year, Sparkling Pointe walks away with 1 silver medal, 2 gold medals, 2 Best in Class Awards, and a National Champion Trophy.
