Nodland Cellars was named Washington State Malbec Winery of the Year at the recent New York International Wine Competition.

The eighth annual contest took place in New York City and featured more than 1,400 submissions from about two dozen countries in more than 50 categories.

Nodland, a members-only winery in Spokane Valley, won the special award for its 2014 malbec. The same wine also won a gold medal at the competition. Nodland also won a bronze for its 2015 syrah.

Nodland also won a gold medal for its 2014 Pepperbridge Vineyard reserve Cabernet Sauvignon in the International Women’s Wine Competition, an international wine competition judged solely by women wine professionals. Its 2014 malbec won silver in the same competition, and its 2015 syrah won bronze. That competition took place in Sonoma County in June.

Nodland Cellars is at 11616 E. Montgomery Drive, Suite 69, in Spokane Valley. Call (509) 927-7770. On the web:
