The Missouri State University Darr College of Agriculture brought home five awards from the 11th annual Mid-American Wine Competition. The university submitted three of its wines: 2016 Chambourcin, 2016 Chambourcin Reserve and 2016 Norton.
A high standard
Missouri State picked up three awards in the Chambourcin category alone. A Gold and Sweepstakes Nominee for the 2016 Chambourcin and Silver for the 2016 Chambourcin Reserve.
“What these awards achieve for MSU is to affirm our credibility as a premium winery/distillery and to show students that we follow best practices and create a high-quality product held to industry standards,” said Marilyn Odneal, clinical instructor of agriculture.
The 2016 Norton received a Gold and Sweepstakes Nominee in the Cynthia/Norton wines category.
