Mid-year Accomplishments

LC-ProfessionalTastingOn June 11th the Lake County Wine Competition was held at Brassfield Estate Winery where Lake County wines were blind tasted by two panels of judges. Results are in, and we are thrilled to say that Chacewater’s 2013 Sauvignon Blanc received Best White Wine in Lake County! Not only did our Sauvignon Blanc impress the palettes, but our 2011 Petite Sirah and newly released 2012 Malbec received silver medals for red wines. The 2012 Organic Chardonnay and 2012 Riesling received silver medals in the White Wine category. Bronze medals were awarded to our 2013 Organic Sauvignon Blanc, 2012 Chardonnay, and 2012 Limited Edition Dry Riesling in this competition. Making it an overall success at this year’s Lake County Wine Competition.

For this reason, the Syrah is on allocation, with a two bottle maximum. For more information on this Syrah and its score of 92, check out the August 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast coming soon!

Earlier this month we sent our wine to the Orange County Commercial Wine Competition. Results are in, and we came out with four gold medal wines! The 2011 Petite Sirah, 2011 Sierra Foothill Merlot, the newly released 2012 Malbec, and the 2012 Chardonnay were all gold medal winners, and we could not be more delighted with those results. We are having a great year and eager to continue to provide you with quality wines to enjoy with loved ones, friends, and family.

Not to be out-done by our award winning wines, we are pleased to announce the results of the 2012 Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition, where our Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil won Best of Show & Best of Class for the Robust Domestic oils!

In addition, our Mission Extra Virgin Olive Oil won a Gold Medal at the 2012 California Olive Oil Council Competition.

We are proud of the hard work and attention to detail from Chacewater Olive Mill Master, Emilio Dela Cruz. Congratulations on these results and we look forward to continuing to produce world-class award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil and wines!
