We have captured the results of several wine competitions
in a searchable database that we offer as a part of our membership services. The database can be searched by competition name, award type, wine type and
winery name. The results are for all awards won by any winery, not just those
won by Foothill Wineries. We have listed below the competitions we have included
to this point with a little information on what makes them special.
It is safe to say that if a wine wins an award in one of these competitions it is
a wine of good quality. However, the reverse is not necessarily true; just because
a wine did not win an award in a competition does not mean it is a wine of poor
quality. Many wineries never even enter contests, but that doesn't mean their
wines are not excellent. Also, most wineries enter only a portion of their wines
and many very nice wines never get judged. Many of the Boutique wineries make less
than 200 cases of a given vintage. That does not leave extra wine for entering competitions.
For these reasons, this information should be used only as a tool.
