Maryland wine competition announces their winners

The Annual Comptrollers Cup Competition, formerly known as the Winemasters Choice Competition, brings together wine makers from across the state of Maryland for a blind judging where the judges only know the composition of the wine, not the label, price nor any other details.  A flight of wines in a single category was dispersed to the five judges for evaluation.
