2014 Shangri-La Grenache Blanc - BRONZE MEDAL

We have chosen to enter this competition the last couple of years (and in a few previous years) because it is
a global and well respected competition.  4,300 wines from all over the world were entered and judged this
year.  The competition attracts high quality judges; well-known sommeliers, educators from universities with
world class Oenology programs, and respected industry professionals.

"The largest and most influential international wine competition in America, the San Francisco International
Wine Competition (SFIWC) has been setting the standard for professional wine judging since its debut in
1980. Now in its 37th year, the SFIWC maintains the highest level of integrity with a blind-tasting system
performed by a highly experienced panel of internationally acclaimed wine experts.

A SFIWC medal has been established as a reliable indication of wine excellence, and wines recognized as
medal-worthy by our judges are universally understood to be among the very best."

2014 Rustic Red Blend - SILVER MEDAL

We entered this competition for personal reasons.  The Boccali family has been big fans of Central Coast
wines for many years.  We have spent many weekends visiting tasting rooms to the North, enjoying wines
from other well-known regions; Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez, Buellton and Paso Robles, to name a few.  Even
with our own winery making an exceptional product, we have still remained club members at some of our
favorite wineries from the days before we were in the industry.  

After many years of being approached by this competition, we decided to see how our wines would do being
judged alongside some of our own personal favorites from the North.  We were very pleased to receive
awards for our Syrah and our blend.
