Terhune Orchards wins Governor’s Cup and nine medals in NJ wine competition

Terhune Orchards Vineyard and Winery took home nine medals in the annual New Jersey Wine Competition.

The competition is organized by the Garden State Wine Growers Association, a coalition of nearly 50 wineries and vineyards across New Jersey that is dedicated to raising the quality of and awareness about New Jersey wines. Gary Pavlis of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension oversees the competition, which featured wines from 21 New Jersey wineries this year.

Terhune Orchards Winery’s blueberry wine, Harvest Blues, won the Governor’s Cup for best fruit wine. Terhune Orchards also led all entrants and totaled nine medals with three gold medals, two silver medals and four bronze medals. Terhune Orchards was awarded  three gold medals for the winery’s Harvest Blue, Blossom White and Just Peachy wines. Terhune won two silver medals for its Chambourcin and Vidal Blanc wines. Four bronze medals were awarded for Terhune’s Apple Wine, Barn Red, Farmhouse White and Rooster Red wine.

“This is incredibly rewarding for us,” said Terhune owner Gary Mount, who noted that Terhune Orchards built a winery production barn on the farm in Lawrenceville last year. “In 2006 my daughter, Tannwen and I planted five acres and we have learned so much through the years. We started bottling in 2010 and have expanded the vineyard to nine acres. Our daughter, Reuwai, is now overseeing cultivation of the vineyard.”
