San Francisco Chronicle

The Largest Competition of American Wines in the World!


Home of the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Sweepstakes Award for BEST RED WINE!

We are so proud and ecstatic over our huge win and tie for the Best Red Wine in the over 5050 wines entered! Judge Bob Foster said "I was one of the wine judges for the Chronicle Wine Competition. That Cab was amazing. GREAT JUICE! (Reminds me of the 68 BV Private Reserve-and I know no higher compliment than that!)"
