Competing against 2,837 entries from around the world, Meadowlark Vineyards was awarded Silver Medals for its 2006 Syrah and 2007 Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon. The competition is featured in Sunset’s November issue, featuring Gold, Silver, and Best-of-Class winners. Complete results of Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Best-of-Class are available at http://www.sunset.com/siwcwinners. Sunset gathered 52 expert judges from around the West to evaluate wines from across the U.S. and all of the World’s greatest winemaking regions, including France, Spain, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Austria, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The judges, who represented three categories—winemakers, trade and education, and journalists—assembled at Sunset’s Northern California headquarters on July 9 and 10, 2012.
“We at Meadowlark Vineyards feel very honored by the awards that Sunset’s judges have given to our wines. We are a family-owned farm and we are delighted that wine connoisseurs are noticing our efforts. Meadowlark Vineyards is very proud in its commitment to sustainable farming. We are designated organic by the CCOF in California and this is of great importance to us. By our commitment to organic farming we hope to benefit our consumers. Being good stewards of our environment benefits all of us,” said Dr. Ramon Guerrero, owner of Meadowlark Vineyards.
