We’re just delighted to receive these accolades and looking forward to a strong second half of the year.
Adam Levy, Founder of New York International Wine Competition comments, We received a significant number of entries into the New York International Wine Competition this year, a total of 1400 bottles of wine were tasted blind by our judging panel so it was highly competitive. The panel were impressed by the marked quality of Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and French Rosé and both stood out respectively in their categories. When the final judges scores came through it was pleasing to see that Sarah Jessica – who is so synonymous with New York – was awarded two golds and a trophy for her Rosé. We offer her and the Invivo team our sincere congratulations, along with the other winners and entries, for producing great quality wines, in what has been a challenging year for winemakers around the world.
