Minnesota Governor’s Cup

  • 2015 La Crescent - After much swishing and spitting, winners have been confirmed at the 2016 International Cold Climate Wine Competition (ICCWC), held today at the University of Minnesota’s Continuing Education Conference Center in St. Paul, MN. The trophy for the best Minnesota grape wine, known as the Minnesota Governor’s Cup, was won by Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery of Kasota, MN, for their single varietal 2015 La Crescent. The Minnesota Governor’s Cup, a lovely large silver ice bucket, recognizes the “Best of Show” or top prize of all Minnesota gold-winning wines. This is the 8th year the traveling trophy has been awarded.
