Your 2013 Wines of the Year


Selecting the winners of the 2013 IWCoK Wine awards was no easy task. I can hardly believe that we offered our members a total of 99 different wines in 2013. A selection so huge that is was clearly difficult for members to choose a favorite.

So once the votes were counted, a total of 21 different wines were selected as YOUR FAVORITE. That’s right, 21 ! I am not sure if this is a wine club president dream or nightmare, but this sure tells us that our members are a diverse bunch.

So, now that all the votes are all in and counted, there is nothing left to do but announce the 2013 award winners.
