Wine Comps 2020

If winning medals and high scores are important to you, then checkout the scores for Brengman Brothers wines for the 2020 compititions.

When it comes to sending our wines to the growing plethora of competitions, Brengman Brothers has been picking the contests that really matter. Early on in winemaking we would enter all the open competitions. It was a year-round activity sending wines to competitions anybody who pays a fee can enter. As a result, we’ve won a big box of medals that sits on a shelf. Confidence and a winning track record helped us change our theory on wine competitions. BB now just enters the tough exclusive competitions that are invitation only -- the Jefferson Cup and the American Fine Wine Competition (AFWC). The Jefferson Cup takes place in Kansas City and the AFWC takes place in Miami. They both happen in the winter months and are the most prestigious wine competitions in America.  

We are proud again to release the results from the recent Jefferson Cup and AFWC competitions;
