13 Awards!!

The Largest Competition of American Wines in the World names the Best of the Best: With 7,164 entries from 28 states across the country, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition once again successfully narrowed thousands of wines down to an exclusive few. This is the highest number of wine entries ever entered, shattering 2015's previous record of 6,417 entries.

Submissions poured in from across the nation, from independent winemakers and boutique wineries to large scale producers.

The winners of the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition were announced last week. For four days, 65 judges from around the nation and world met in Sonoma County to deliberate and choose the best wines from the entries. The wines were judged by an independent panel of experts and presented by the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGATE. 

We entered five wines, all won medals: Two Gold, Two Silver, One Bronze.
