Winning Wines of Note at San Francisco Wine Competition

The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the largest in North America. It is also one of the most influential for American wines.

In 2022, over 4800 wines were judged over the three day event.

As one would expect, a majority of the wines entered are from West Coast wineries. However, several East Coast wines scored very high.

A $60 bottle of 2020 Chardonnay from Adega Vinho in the Texas Hill Country won Double Gold.

A $25 bottle of 2020 Chardonnay from Arrington Vineyards just outside of Nashville, Tennessee won Double Gold!

Arrington Vineyards also won Double Gold for the $20 a bottle 2020 Sauvignon Blanc . That’s right, this Tennessee winery won two Double Gold medals!

Barboursville Vineyards in Barboursville, Virginia won Double Gold for the 2020 Viognier.

Doukenie Winery in Hillsboro, Virginia won Double Gold for the $65 a bottle 2016 Loudoun County Merlot!

Jefferson Vineyards in Charlottesville, Virginia won Double Gold for the $77 a bottle 2014 vintage Monticello Meritage!

Maggie Malick Wine Caves of Purcellville, Virginia won a Double Gold for the $29 bottle of 2020 estate grown Albariño.

Valley Mills Vineyards in Valley Mills, Texas won Best in Class for the $43 bottle of 2019 Tempranillo.

Weymouth Farms, Orchard, and Winery of Hinckley, Ohio won Double Gold for the $28 a bottle 2019 estate grown Aromella. Aromella is a Cornell University developed hybrid of Traminette and Rabat 34.

Weis Vineyards of the Finger Lakes in New York, won Double Gold for the $20 bottle of 2020 Grüner Veltliner.

This just proves our adage, really good wine can be produced in non-traditional wine regions.

We encourage you to get out try the local wineries in your area. Cheers! 🍷🍷
