First awards

Yesterday Jane and I attended the "Grape and Gourmet" event at the California Expo Fairgrounds. (State fair by any other name). We picked up our first two awards; a Gold for the Carneros Pinot and a Bronze for the Cienega Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and then poured for the attendees. 

An interesting event, mix of 200 wineries and Sacramento restaurants in a large concrete floored exhibition hall. We learned a lot about what to bring to the next event of this type, and had good reception of our wines, though being 150 miles away, its unlikely we'll see much business.
