Argentina Wine Awards, 2010
Some of our newest wines (which haven’t hit the shelves yet) were recently submitted to a tasting competition called the Argentina Wine Awards, hosted by Wines of Argentina. I am proud to say that four out of the five of the vintages we entered took home awards! In all, we won 2 silvers (for our 2009 Semillón, and our 2008 Malbec), and 2 Bronzes (for our 2009 Chardonnay, and our 2008 Bonarda). You may remember that we took home a few medals from last year’s awards as well.
Congratulations to our Wine Panel and our oenologists! Keep up the great work!
