Our Wedding Oak Winery Albariño 2013 has won again. Big. This time it won an impressive Double Gold medal and “Best Albariño” recognition at the 35th Annual San Francisco International Wine Competition, held June 12–14, 2015. We’re over-the-moon thrilled to have this recognition for our Albariño from one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the U.S. It has previously won a Double Gold at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Wine Competition, a Gold at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, a Silver at the 2015 TEXSOM International Wine Awards and a Silver at the 2015 Lone Star International Wine Competition. It’s clearly a well-made wine.

Our 2013 Albariño scored a stellar 96 points on a 100 point scale. This delicious dry white wine is Spanish in style and made with 100 percent grapes grown in Edna Valley, California. It’s fresh, dry and versatile with distinctive aromas of white flowers, peach and apricot along with bracing sea spray, lemon, peachy stone fruits and mango flavors. The unoaked Albariño wine pairs incredibly well with shellfish.

We also won Bronze medals for our Rhône blend, Terre Rouge 2013, Texas Hill Country, made with estate grown grapes, and 2013 Sangiovese, Texas Hill Country. The judges selected the winning Wedding Oak wines from among more than 4,900 wines from around the world. With the Double Gold and two Bronze medals from this competition, we have been recognized with 26 significant awards in our three years in business.

The San Francisco International Wine Competition is the largest, and one of the most distinguished international wine competition in the United States.
