Meadery of the Rockies Again Wins Governor's Cup Gold Medal!
Wine makers, chefs and wine lovers gathered at History Colorado Center in August to celebrate the 12 best wines that comprise this year's Governor's Case, representing Colorado's wine industry to the world. Meadery of the Rockies' Strawberry Honey Wine was among the chosen dozen. CEO and founder Glenn Foster (at right, below) joined (from left) Tyler Phillips, Talon's Front Range sales manager, Nina Acosta, Hyatt Regency pastry chef, John Recca, sales and marketing director and Melanie Snyder in pouring and pairing the wine for the crowds attending. Acosta's creation was a fennel pollen scone with pink peppercorn pickled strawberries and Chantilly cream, a delicious piquant dessert that brings out the sweet tart flavors of our celebrated mead. Get the recipe for pickled strawberries on our website, www.Talonwinebrands.com and discover the second best way to preserve the summery taste of strawberries!
