WINE AWARDS CONTINUE TO POUR IN FOR BEVMO!’S VINEYARD PARTNERS WINES
Beverage Retailer’s Proprietary Wines Awarded 77 Medals At Recent SF Chronicle Competition; Brands Combined To Garner 250+ Awards In Local Competitions This Past Year
CONCORD, Calif. – March 18, 2016 – Continuing to impress judges with their quality and value, BevMo!’s Vineyard Partners wines were awarded 76 individual medals at the recent San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. And over the past 12 months, these proprietary wines of the West Coast-based beverage retailer have garnered nearly 350 individual awards at California wine competitions.
Among the award-winning Vineyard Partner wines at last month’s San Francisco event, two were named “Best of Class” and two others won “Double Gold.” Another 12 won Gold Medals, while 39 took home Silver in what is considered the largest competition of American wines in the world.
Vineyard Partners wines are exclusive to BevMo!, and are proprietary blends from vineyards around the world. The Vineyard Partners collection is comprised of more than 400 wines that offer outstanding quality at the best value to BevMo! customers.
In four prestigious California wine competitions last year – SF International Wine Competition, Riverside International Wine Competition, Long Beach Grand Cru Wine Competition and the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition – 68 of Bevmo!’s Vineyard Partners wines were awarded more than 250 individual awards, the largest awards haul in one season for these wines.
“It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Vineyard Partners wines compare favorably among the best of California wines, based on these impressive showings the past 12 months,” said Bob Paulinski, BevMo!’s senior vice president of wine. “We knew these unique wines would quickly be recognized for their superb quality and tremendous value.”
An Ivory & Burt Chardonnay from Lodi and a Four Vines Chardonnay from Monterey were the two Vineyard Partners wines named “Best of Class” by the San Francisco Chronicle competition’s wine judges.
