blanc de Blancs

Our North Coast Blanc De Blancs won Gold — 93pts at the 2019 International Women’s Wine Compeition that took place June 11-12, 2019.

Over 1,025 wines were entered into the annual competition that was expertly judged by the wine industry’s leading professional women (though open to men and women winemakers alike). The competition not only recognizes the best wines that appealed to the judges, but also the wines they felt would most appeal and influence other women wine buyers and consumers.

Rack & Riddle Wins Sweepstakes!

Sonoma County Blanc de noirs

Our Sonoma County Blanc De Noirs was the Sparkling Sweepstake award winner of the 2018 San Francisco Wine Competition.

In a competition of nearly 7,000 wines from 35 states with an emormous field of entries, only a few wines were declared best of the best — and we’re proud to be one of them! Mike Dunne, contributing wine writer, notes:

“Against a brassy backdrop, robust beads of fine bubbles lift the delicate scent of tiny berries tossed with slivered almonds. Overall, dry, lean and refined.”
