We started 2015 on a high note, bringing home nine awards from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Recognized as the largest competition of American wines in the world, this year’s San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition received more than 6,417 entries from more than 28 states.

We were delighted to have been among the exclusive few to earn awards.

The star among our entries was our popular Gold Digger pear wine, winning Best of Class among the entered fruit wines. A wine earns Best of Class when deemed to be the best in its group. Typically, about 40 wines of a similar style, grape variety and/or price range make up a class.

Calamity Jane also earned bragging rights in the competition, taking home a Double Gold medal.

Our Pink Slip Moscato, Lawrence Elk and Wild Plum Fusion wines won silver awards. We also took home awards for Brianna, Anna Pesä Zinfandel, Anna Pesä Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Ass Rhubarb.

We also recently won 10 awards at the Florida State Fair, bringing our grand total since 2001 to 842.
