This winter we submitted wines for review by the prestigious Harvest Challenge 2019 judges. We are once again overjoyed with the results! The Harvest Challenge wine competition evaluates wines from the same region, belonging to a specific appellation, which share similar soil types and weather conditions. This and wine making techniques all contribute to create the specific personality of the wines submitted. Our goal is to make wines true to their varietal character and a reflection of the appellation in which the grapes are grown! See results below.
