June’s issue of SHW’s The Grapevine landed in your email box early yesterday morning. On page 4, Chief Judge Donna Bettencourt recapped this year’s top awards. Don and Gayle Koehler were erroneously omitted from the list of Double-Gold awards. All three judges on the panel that judged the Koehler’s 2014 Syrah initially gave the wine gold recognition. When this happens, the wine is a double-gold winner.
Congrats to Don and Gayle and to all winemakers enterting Jubilee wines that placed. In all, awarded were a Best of Show, 3 Best of Divisions, 9 double-golds, 30 golds, 67 silvers, and 17 bronzes. Double-gold, division and Best of Show winners will be recognized at the June 15 meeting. All Jubilee ribbons will also be there for distribution.
