TMV's Estate grown Touriga won gold in last year's (2018) International Eastern.
TMV 2016 Cabernet Franc won double gold in the 2018 Jefferson Cup which is described this way by founder Doug Frost, Master Sommelier, Master of Wine: "This competition is not open to every winery willing to submit an entrance fee. Rather we select the best of the best, culled from tastings and competitions in America."
TMV received a gold/best of class in the 2018 Los Angeles International for its 2016 Petit Manseng. A silver medal was awarded the 2015 Malbec, Ezzard estate grown.
TMV 2016 Malbec was named "Best Red Vinifera" in Georgia.
