- 2006 - The Viticulture
Assn. of the Santa Cruz Mountains recognizes and congratulates our local
wineries for their award-winning wines made from appellation grapes.
Local wineries won a total of 78 medals in the 2006 SF Chronicle
Competition, and 49 of those were for appellation wines, including 14 out of
the 19 Gold Medals won, 17 out of the 30 Silver, and 16 out of 29 Bronze.
Pinot Noir had a particularly good showing, winning more than one third of
the medals, with two thirds of these made from appellation fruit. Seven out
of the 10 Gold Medals for Pinot came from our local vineyards. Here are the
results, testimony to the high quality of our appellation wines.
