Stony Run Winery, Pennsylvania Wins Repeat Gold Medals at 23rd Annual Finger Lakes International Wine & Spirits Competition


July 19th – The 23rd annual Finger Lakes International Wine & Spirits Competition (FLIWC) proudly announces Stony Run Winery, Pennsylvania, a repeat Gold Medal winner, this year winning two Golds for their 2021 Albariño and 2019 Late Harvest Vidal Blanc. Stony Run Winery is proud to grow, ferment and bottle all of their wines in the Lehigh Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA).

The FLIWC showcases the exceptional craftsmanship and diversity of wines and spirits from around the world and has become one of the largest wine competitions in the world to benefit a charitable organization, Camp Good Days. This year’s event attracted an unprecedented number of entries, reaffirming its status as a premier competition in the industry. Stony Run Winery medaled for all eight wines submitted to the 2023 event.

Stony Run Wines are all estate grown in the Lehigh Valley AVA in the foothills of the Blue Mountains near Kempton, Pennsylvania. An AVA designation is awarded by the The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) to areas with unique viticultural capabilities after examining the climate, soils and terroir. According to the Pennsylvania Wine Association, this designation puts the Lehigh Valley on the same footing as more recognizable AVA’s such as Napa Valley, Willamette Valley and the Finger Lakes Region.

According to Stony Run’s winegrower, Larry Shrawder, “Although Pennsylvania has historically been known for its sweet Concord based wines, it is increasingly emerging as a world class dry European style wine producing region as evidenced by the success of these wines, among others, in international competition.”

All of the winning wines are currently available in the winery tasting room, 150 Independent Road, Breinigsville, PA 18031. The winery has recently expanded its tasting hours to accommodate demand. The current hours are Wednesday – Saturday 12 – 8pm, Sunday and Monday 12 – 5pm.
