We are happy to announce that Breaux Vineyards has won three medals at the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC). SFIWC medallions are globally recognized as reliable indicators of wine excellence.
The SFIWC is the nation’s largest and most influential wine competition. Wines that receive a SFIWC medal are universally considered to be among the best in the world. The 2017 SFIWC took place at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco, California from June 30th to July 2nd, 2017.
Wines that are submitted to the SFIWC undergo a rigorous judging process. Panels of internationally acclaimed wine experts perform blind tastings over a period of four days. During the first round of tastings, wines are judged on their individual merits within the context of their class. Aside from variety and vintage, absolutely no information is provided to judges about each wine. Specialized judging panels collaborate to decide which entries are worthy of receiving Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. More than 4,200 wines from 31 countries were tasted at this year’s event.
“We are pleased to be honored with these prestigious awards.” said Paul Breaux, President and CEO of Breaux Vineyards. “This recognition is further proof of our dedication to creating spectacular wines.”
The SFIWC awarded Breaux Vineyards with three awards. Breaux received a Gold Medal for their 2016 Madeleine’s Chardonnay, a Silver Medal for their 2016 Viognier and a Bronze Medal for their 2016 Nebbiolo Rose. Breaux’s award winning wines can be sampled at their tasting room in Purcellville, Virginia.
