2016 Five Mountain Pinot Noir – Gold Medal In The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Our 2016 Five Mountain Pinot Noir has been awarded a Gold Medal in the largest competition of American wines in the world!

After receiving more than 6,800 entries from 35 states across the country, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (SFCWC) has once again successfully narrowed thousands of wines down to an exclusive few.

A complete listing of the 2019 results, sort-able by price point and category, can be found at winejudging.com.

In the second week of January, over 60 skilled judges from a variety of fields including trade, education, media, retail and hospitality traveled to the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds in Sonoma County to determine the best wines in the USA. Utilizing an extensive process that divides the varietals into several categories and subcategories, the event gave the panels the chance to rate entries as Bronze, Silver, Gold, “Double Gold” (equivalent to a unanimous rating by all panel members) or Best of Class.
