The Hudson Valley has been called the Napa Valley of the East, but maybe it should be the other way around. In 2010 Whitecliff Vineyard Riesling, grown in Gardiner, won Best White in Show at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. That means that all 45 judges awarded it a gold medal in a blind tasting, equaling a double-gold distinction. Each double-gold was tasted once more, and the Riesling was judged best of the best. In case you don’t know how loud to crow, that wine beat out 1,300 competitors.
