Results from the 2013 New York Wine and Food Classic are in, and several wineries located within Western New York's two wine regions placed.

In total, over 842 wines were submitted, along with 11 ciders and 22 spirits. The panel of judges was made up of 22 experts from around the world, including New York, California, France, and the United Kingdom. The New York Food and Wine Classic is in its twenty-eight year.

21 Brix, located on the Lake Erie Wine trail in Portland, NY, took home several wins, including a Double Gold for its Vidal Ice Wine. Leonard Oakes Estate Winery, located in Medina, NY on the Niagara Wine Trail also won several awards, most notably a Double Gold for its 2012 Reserve Riesling.

With the fall season quickly approaching, there may not be a more beautiful time to get out and taste some wine on the Niagara Wine Trail or the Chautauqua-Lake Erie Wine Trail.
