SAN FRANCISCO – Five Northwest wines earned top honors at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, the nation’s most prestigious wine judging.

The competition took place last month in downtown San Francisco. It is operated by U.S. wine personality Anthony Dias Blue and wine marketer Tim McDonald.

Abacela near Roseburg, Ore., won the title of best rosé for its 2015 Grenache Rosé using grapes from Southern Oregon. The winery also won a gold medal for its Syrah.

san-francisco-international-wine-competition-logoAlso winning best-of-class honors at the San Francisco International Wine Competition were Marchesi Vineyards in Hood River, Ore.; Kiona Vineyards & Winery on Red Mountain, Wash.; Poplar Grove Winery near Penticton, British Columbia; and Mission Hill Family Estate near Kelowna, British Columbia.

Twenty-two Northwest wines won unanimous double gold medals, meaning all the judges on a particular panel agreed that the wine merited a gold. Among these was Clearwater Canyon Cellars’ 2013 Selway, a red blend using grapes from the Lewis-Clark Valley American Viticultural Area, the newest federally approved AVA in the Pacific Northwest.

Northwest wineries won 61 gold medals and amassed 439 medals overall.

The San Francisco International Wine Competition is in its 36th year, and it was staged at the Nikko Hotel near Union Square.

The “Double Gold Tour” stops in the Pacific Northwest during October. It will be Oct. 27 in Portland at the Ace Hotel and Oct. 29 in Seattle at Frolik Kitchen. Selected double gold medal winners will be poured at these events.
