“We’ve expanded the competition’s mission to embrace an equally exciting and expanding group of homegrown distilleries. At least one winery already has established a companion distillery, and we hear that others are contemplating the move. So including spirits seemed a fitting expansion for the competition. “ - Jane Garvey, a Founder of the Georgia Trustees Wine Competition
