Monroe County winery earns award for 'Best Wine in Pennsylvania'

HAMILTON TWP., Pa. - A local Pennsylvania winery earned a top honor for one of its wines. 

The American Wine Society named Mountain View Vineyard's 'Bliss White' wine the Best Wine in Pennsylvania. 

Owners of the Hamilton Township winery, Linda and Randy Rice, accepted their award at the annual American Wine Society conference.

"It means so much to us to have our wine recognized. What started out as a hobby has grown into a thriving business and to have that hard work recognized is special," said Linda Rice. 

Their 'Bliss White' is a Vidal Blanc wine with notes of citrus, melon, and a hint of oak. 

In addition, two other Mountain View Vineyard products earned awards. The Noiret Red won the American Wine Society gold medal and LaCrescent Sparkling Wine won the silver medal.
