Our wines fared well at the 2012 Los Angeles International Wine Competition with the 2010 Chacewater Zinfandel scoring a 92 Point Gold Medal and Best of Class Award, as well as the 2009 Chacewater Malbec scoring a 91 Point Gold Medal and Best of Class Award!
There were many strong contenders in the 73rd annual Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition. Judged in May 2012, many varietals and price ranges were represented, with a new point system introduced, acknowledging each varietal’s special attributes and providing a new level of precision in the competition’s wine ranking systems, a benefit for the competition and wine enthusiasts.
Nearly 3,300 wines were entered, tasted by a 72-member panel comprised of international judges.
The public will have its first opportunity to taste the award-winning wines at FUN Decanted, a June fundraising event to benefit the education programs of The Learning Centers at Fairplex.
