Awards 2013

Each year, we enter our wines in nearly 20 international wine competitions held throughout the United States. Our wines are judged “blind” among hundreds, if not thousands, of other wines by a stellar group of judges from all aspects of the wine world. It is a true testament to the quality of what is inside the bottle to be recognized among our peers. We hope you agree.

Below is a list of awards received in 2013.
