Awards

Because of our small annual production, we don’t enter a lot of competitions. It takes a lot of wine to try and hit them all (to say nothing of entry fees). Nonetheless, it does do wonders for the winemaker’s ego to get some bling to hang on the bottles. We believe our customers re our best judges… so taste our wines and see what YOU think!
