Taking Home the Gold at the American Fine Wine Competition!

by Robin Black | Published February 10, 2020

Our wines continue to collect accolades, and we’re delighted to get 2020 off to a great start by picking up several medals at the prestigious American Fine Wine Competition (AFWC).

Our Viognier, which picked up a gold medal at last month’s San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, was awarded Best of Class at the AFWC!

This particular competition began in 2007 and has quickly become one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the U.S, with fewer than 1,000 wines invited to participate.

Here’s more on this invitation-only competition:

“The American Fine Wine Competition is exclusive and by ‘invitation only.’ Only wines tasted and considered “world-class” are invited by an AFWC judge or one of our Wine Acquisition Team members. Our mission is to seek out those wines that are the best of the best.”

In addition to our Viognier’s Best of Class recognition, these are the other Acquiesce winners, by category:

  • Belle Blanc – Other White Blend – Gold Medal
  • Ingénue – Other White Blend – Silver Medal
  • Sparkling Grenache Blanc – Sparkling – Silver Medal

We think our premium Rhȏne-style wines are truly world-class, and it’s always an honor when other wine professionals agree!
