We have been busy this summer preparing the vineyards for harvest and monitoring our wines in the barrel. Construction continues on the new Winery, we are hoping for a Spring 2017 opening.
In addition, the San Francisco Wine Competition results are in and Shadowbrook has once again been awarded 11 medals for all 11 wines entered! This is a rare accomplishment in the wine industry that not many have earned, and we are once again proud and humbled that our Walnut Creek fruit has been so widely recognized over our more established competitors in Napa and Sonoma Counties.
This year’s big winners were – of course – “2013 Jon-Rae,” winning a Gold Medal in the “Bordeaux Blends, $55 and Over category, and our wine club favorite “2013 Encore” earning its second career “Double Gold” and finally our first vintage of 100% 2013 Pinot Noir earning a Silver Medal.
Please also welcome Carlie Jochner, a recent graduate from Chapman University, as our new social media manager. Follow Shadowbrook Winery on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Feel free to send, firstname.lastname@example.org, any fun Shadowbrook Winery related photos to post.
