Easley Winery, 205 North College Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana, is proud to announce that its locally-made Traminette wine has been awarded White Wine of the Year, Best of Class, and a Double Gold Medal at the 2013 Indy International Wine Competition.

They are excited to bring more recognition to Indiana’s signature wine. “There is no other wine like Traminette!  The grape is new and the taste is unique.” said Meredith Easley of Easley Winery.

 Winery owner, Mark Easley added, “We are thrilled and honored to receive this award!”  Easley Winery, located in downtown Indianapolis since 1974, garnered additional gold medals with its Indiana Champagne, 2011 Chardonnay, and 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon.

They have been no stranger to the award circuit, garnering 24 awards of gold or higher in competitions across the country in 2013, four of which came from California events.

 The Indy International Wine Competition is the largest scientifically organized and independent wine competition in the United States.  Nearly 3,000 entries from 15 countries and 40 US states were evaluated by 50 judges, including wine writers, winemakers, winegrowers, enologists, chefs, sommeliers, wine distributers, retailers and consumers.

These distinguished judges meet every year in the heart of America, a truly central place for great wines to be seen and recognized.  For full 2013 competition results, visit .

 Easley Traminette boasts floral aromas and fresh citrus notes. This semi-dry style of Traminette is a delicious complement to Indiana pork tenderloin and Winemaker, Jeff Martin, recommends serving chilled.

Traminette was adopted as Indiana’s signature wine in 2009 and continues to grow in popularity. Easley Traminette can be found at Indiana Meijer locations, select Indiana Marsh and packaged liquor locations, as well as Easley Winery in downtown Indianapolis.
