Easley Winery is proud to announce that its locally-made Traminette wine has been awarded Best of Class at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.  Easley winemaker Jeff Martin said, “I grew up working in Indiana vineyards, so bringing home this honor for grapes grown in Indiana makes this award even more meaningful.”

With over 5,500 wine entries, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the largest competition of American wines in the world.  They have brought together the most distinguished judges in the country to compare wines in multiple price ranges and varieties to determine the best of the best in each category that appeal to all walks of life.  For full 2014 competition results, visit

Easley Traminette is no stranger to high honors.  It was awarded White Wine of the Year, Best of Class, and Double Gold at the 2013 Indy International Wine Competition and holds three other 2013 Gold medals from prestigious competitions across the country.  “We focus on creating exceptional wines and that effort has gained us national recognition”, says second-generation owner Mark Easley.

Easley Traminette boasts floral aromas and fresh citrus notes. This semi-dry style of Traminette is a delicious complement to Indiana pork tenderloin and it is recommended serving chilled. Traminette was adopted as Indiana’s signature wine in 2009 and continues to grow in popularity. Easley Traminette can be found at all Indiana Meijer locations, select Indiana Marsh stores and packaged liquor locations, as well as Easley Winery in downtown Indianapolis.
