BOGLE WINS BIG at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
February 6, 2016
With the first wine competition of 2016 in the books, Bogle wines made an impressive showing with nine of our varietals bringing home awards. The Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Petite Sirah Port all earned Gold medals, while the Chardonnay even earned a Double Gold and prestigious Best of Class distinction. What a great way to start the competition year!
“Our winemaking team is honored that so many of the varietals earned medals this year,” says Eric Aafedt, Director of Winemaking. “The Chronicle competition is such a well respected and extensive evaluation, we are pleased that the judges liked the wines.”
Judges at the annual competition certainly had their work cut out for them, with a record- setting 7,164 entries from 28 different states. In addition to the Gold medals, several other Bogle wines took home hardware, including Silver medals for the Essential Red, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir and Phantom, and our Old Vine Zinfandel bringing home the Bronze.
Now that the hard work of judging is done, it’s time to taste all those award winners! The SFCWC Public Tasting is scheduled for Saturday, February 13th from 1:30-5pm at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. Bogle crew members will be pouring our medal winners at the event.
