FRESNO, Calif. — Saviez Wines 2016 Cabernet Franc and Eberle Winery’s 2021 Cote-du-Robles Blanc earned Gold-Medal, Best of Show Red & White, respectively at the San Joaquin Valley Wine Competition July 13. Held for the first time at Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery’s Paso Robles Winery, the competition featured wines from through the State of California and prices anywhere between $6.00 and $100.00!
The judging panel consisted of wine makers from various esteemed wineries around the state, with a heavy influence of Central Coast and Central Valley producers along with wine industry professionals, writers and a younger “judge in training”.
Sponsored by AB Biotech and Ravago Chemicals, the 2022 Competition awarded medals to 40% of entries from wines from southern to northern California, and every region in between. Competition Chair, Marty Spate, remarks that, “Given the challenges mother nature has thrown at California these last several harvests, I am really impressed with how many wineries were able to continue to produce quality award winners.” He continued, “… the results show that California producers, from all areas of our state, consistently supply quality, drinkable wines. We are excited for seeing what the future holds!”
