The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the largest wine tasting of American wines in the world, and this year the Lodi wine region has reason to celebrate! Not only did Lodi wine’s achieve more Golds this year then ever before, but a total of 133 wines from the region went on to receive some sort of distinction. Notably, Lodi Rules growers were at the top of the pack! Bokisch Vineyards received Best of Class for their 2008 Terra Alta Vineyard Garnacha and Golds for their 2009 Albarino and 2008 Tempranillo. Michael-David, another large supporter or the Lodi Rules program, walked away with numerous awards including Best of Class for their 2009 Incognito. Ripken Winery was awarded a Double Gold for their 2008 Petite Syrah and Silver for their 2008 El Matador Tempranillo. Congratulations to our Lodi Rules growers for setting a high standard for sustainably grown wine!
