We kicked off the New Year on a high note, bringing home four awards from the 2016 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 7,100 entries from 28 states across the country. It was the highest number of entries ever received for the competition.

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 a Double Gold medal. Gold Digger also won Best of Class among the entered fruit wines at the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle. The latest Double Gold medal brought the grand total awards for Gold Digger to date to 37.

Our popular Crab Apple wine won a Gold medal, bringing that wine’s grand total awards to 36. Our Lawrence Elk and Anna Pesä Chenin Blanc 2015 wines also won awards.

This latest round of awards brought our grand total since 2001 to 880. Browse all of our awards here.
