Awards

riesling-double-gold-105x300We are pleased to announce we received more than 25 medals so far in 2016, including 7 Gold medals and 1 Double Gold.

In addition our Vignoles was rated the best in the country! That’s right – our 2012 Late Harvest Vignoles was awarded the best Vignoles at the prestigious “International East Meets West Wine Challenge.” Vineyard & Winery Management, a popular trade publication, conducts very popular contests on both coasts of the United States. Winners from each contest are pitted against each other. Not only did our Vignoles receive a DOUBLE GOLD, but it went on to win the East Meets West Wine Challenge!

We are particularly proud of the Double Gold medals, as this level of distinction is very hard to come by. To receive a Double Gold medal, a wine must be unanimously awarded a Gold medal by two panels of judges. Even one “silver” by either of the panels would disqualify the wine from Double Gold status.
