Just like the Olympics, not every wine can win the Gold but taking a Silver Medal is definitely something to be proud of.
Sunset Magazine is a very highly respected publication in America, and First Crush is very excited to say that our 2009 Puppy Love, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon won a Silver Medal at their 1st Annual International Wine Competition. With over 2,840 wines entered from around the world, only a select few can call themselves worthy, and taking the Silver in our category allows us to boast just that.
We here at First Crush like to consider ourselves to be an ultra-micro-boutique winery, and when producing just under 300 cases per year it is difficult to get our name out there, but this competition has put First Crush on the map.
This is our second Silver medal of the year, the other being at the Central Coast Wine Competition, and we must admit, we now have Wine Competition Fever. Our 2010 wines have just been bottled and are just waiting to be enjoyed by all and we hope they will be received as well as our 2008 Soul Mate and our 2009 Puppy Love.
We can’t thank the judges of the competition enough for giving our little winery a chance, and we hope our friends and fans take this opportunity to get the last of our award-winning wines before they are all gone!
