International Wine Challenge Sommelier

The fifth annual Sommelier Challenge wine competition, staged the last weekend of September in San Diego, had a decidedly international flair. A glance at the top awards confirms as much.
The Sommelier Challenge brought together 16 certified sommeliers from around the nation to evaluate a record total of 898 wines at a “blind” tasting in which the identity of the producer and the name of the wine was concealed until after awards had been assigned. The somms were divided into panels and each panel tasted approximately 130 wines, sending its favorites on to the championship round where best of class and best of show awards were determined.
We’re thrilled to announce that many our wines submitted for the Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition received platinum, gold and silver honors! The best is that we got the price : Winery of the Year and 2 prices for your favorite wine : Arrogant Frog Lily Pad Red 2012 and Savvy Sauvignon Blanc 2012.
