san fran winnersRoussanne and Tempranillo have recently become some of the most widely planted and critically acclaimed vinifera grown in the state of Texas over the past decade, and the San Francisco International Wine Competition is arguably the most prestigious wine competition in the U.S. With that said, Arché just struck Gold!

2014 Tempranillo:  Double Gold
2014 Roussanne:  Gold

“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 36th 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.”

San Francisco International Wine Competition

This was the first year we entered any wines in the San Francisco International Wine Competition. This is a very high profile competition where our wines are judged alongside of some of the best in the world. We know the competition would be tough, but we figured we should give it a shot and Lo! and behold! we won three medals!

Our 2012 Ryan’s Red, which we are very reluctant to enter into competitions only because we have so little of it and hate to diminish salable inventory on limited productions, won bronze. Ryan’s Red is aging very nicely in the bottle, has a fruity taste and a nice, smooth mouth feel.

Our 2012 Roussanne, which won a platinum medal at the San Diego International Competition earlier in the year and was rated a 93, won bronze this time. Roussanne converted me from a 100% dry red drinker to now enjoying this dry white several times a week.

Our 2012 Syrah won a silver medal. Having tasted this Syrah against others in the same price range, I give it a gold. It is truly, gratifyingly enjoyable to drink. Sorry, I am not good at the flowery wine tasting descriptions (working on it), I just know what I like!
