And The Winner Is...BOW!   ...WOW!


              2010 cab awards               Viogner Awards

We've been very proud of the wine we've created over the last several years.  We're even more proud (and honored) ((and EXCITED!)) when we learn that we've won awards from some very prestigious competitions.  We've done so facing steep competition from wines made all over the world, the United States and even here in Virginia. With over 150 medals and awards, five best in Category, and an unprecedented three Best in Show awards, BOW has set its standards for wine excellence very high.

The votes are in and the verdict is unanimous:

Barrel Oak Winery is “Virginia’s Favorite Winery”
