South Jersey Wine Scores Big

A South Jersey winery recently scored big marks for one of its wine and received the highest score awarded by the organization in three years.

Amalthea Cellars in Atco received a score of 97 points for their 2015 Legend’s Edition Europa I wine through The Beverage Testing Institute, making it the highest scoring wine in three years.

Founded in 1981, the independent institute uses impartial, blind tasting methods developed by Cornell University to test various wines, beers, and liquors from across the world. The prestigious institute has been featured in the likes of The New Yorker, CNBC, International Wine Review and the Wine Enthusiast, among others, and has published over 8,400 reviews in the past three years. Among them, only nine wines have made it to the 97 mark. Now, Amalthea’s locally grown Bordeaux-style blend can count itself among one of those wines.

Along with this exceptionally high score, Amalthea Cellars was also awarded two 95s and two 94s for other wines.
