HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WANE) Two-EE’s Winery has only been open for a couple years, but that’s all it took to make international headlines.
The winery recently entered in the Indy International Wine Competition, the largest scientific win competition in the world, according to Eric Harris, Co-Owner and winemaker at Two-EE’s Winery. Among 2,800 entries from all over the world, three of the winery’s red wines, Dolcetto, Alicante and Pinot Noir earned double gold. Dolcheto and Alicante, two dry red wines are Two-EE’s newest selections.
“The dry reds are what I hold my name to. It takes a lot of effort to make a really good dry-red,” said Eric Harris, Co-owner and winemaker at Two-EE’s Winery, “Every judge that judged it, said this is a gold medal wine, so that feels really good.”
In June, the winery earned top honors in the International Women’s Wine Competition, held in Santa Rosa, California.
With nearly 1,100 entries from as far away as New Zealand, Chile, Italy, and South Korea, the competition is judged by leading female figures of the wine industry from around the globe.
Two-EE’s was represented by four of their wines, Plonqe’, Diamond, Catawba, and White Sangria. Catawba and White Sangria earned Silver awards, while Diamond earned Gold and Best in Class, and Plonqe’, a local favorite, won both Double Gold and Best in Class.
“It’s nice to have the medals, but at the same time, it’s cool to have our two best-selling wines, the customers love them, but also have the affirmation that they are truly great wines, ” said Emily Harris, Co-owner of Two-EE’s Winery.
Two-EE’s Winery opened in July 2013 and is located at 6808 North US 24 E in Huntington.
