Wine Awards & Accolades 2021


Congratulations are in order! Our 2017 Samuele’s Quarry Red Blend was awarded a Gold Medal and 92 Points in the Distinguished Sunset International Wine Competition!

The Sunset International Wine Competition is considered to be one of the most respected, and has the honor and distinction of recognizing the best wines produced both domestically and internationally. This contest drew top-level wines and hand-picked, esteemed judges to determine which wines stood out and are worthy of recognition.  Wines were judged from a field of over 2,900 entries. Only wines rating 90+ points were awarded Gold Medals. 

This is the 21st medal we’ve won from Sunset Magazine and we’re honored to be include with the other winners.  To receive a medal from Sunset Magazine truly recognizes the hard work and dedication we put into the wines we produce.  To have a wine receive a medal here is a wonderful achievement.

In looking over our latest awards we began wondering just how many medals we actually had won over the years, and we were astonished by the total.  Since 2013, we have received the following awards:

  • 4 Double Gold Medals
  • 2 Platinum Awards
  • 11 “Best of” Awards
  • 71 Gold Medals
  • 98 Silver Medals
  • 42 Bronze Medals
  • 223 Total Medals and Awards

Not bad for a “Micro” winery!
