Harmony Hill Vineyards Brings Home Two Medals

No, not the Olympics, but equally exciting for Harmony Hill Vineyards as they celebrate two huge wins at the 25th Hilton Head International Wine Festival.

HiltonHead Harmony Hill’s 2008 Rubato took home a Gold medal while the 2007 Refrain took home a Bronze. The Rubato is 100% Chambourcin (French-American hybrid), barrel-aged to produce a vibrant aromas and flavors of toffee, black currant and cherry compote set off by plenty of smoky, toasty oak and a hint of black pepper. The Refrain is a Cabernet blend that pops with ripe berries and firm tannins.

For the past 25 years the Hilton Head International Wine Festival has been promoting the island as a top food and wine destination.  Outside of the wine there are several culinary events that also celebrate the Festival.

Harmony Hill Vineyards is one of the area’s premier winery destinations.  In the summer time they are known for their Friday and Saturday night entertainment featuring local music talents.  Harmony Hill’s underground wine cave is also worth the trip, one of only four similar structures in the U.S.

Harmony Hill is closed for the season but will re-open Memorial Day weekend.  In the meantime visit their website or try Harmony Hill Wines for yourself at one of these Cincinnati locations.
