Putah Creek Winery takes home three medals

By
February 18, 2011 |

Putah Creek Winery of Davis has been awarded three medals in the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

The winery won a silver medal for its 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon and bronze for its 2009 Chardonnay and 2009 Viognier.

All of the wines awarded were fully estate grown and produced.

Putah Creek Winery’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft with hints of oak and mellow tannins. It was released to the public in October 2010 and “has only been improving with age,” a news release said. The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon also earned a silver medal in last year’s Chronicle competition.

The 2009 Chardonnay was only fermented in stainless steel, “resulting in bright, alluring flavors of citrus and melon that pair nicely with a variety of cuisine,” the news release said.

“This is the first year the we made the Chardonnay in stainless and it turned out beautifully,” said winery owner Gene Glaeser.

Their 2009 Viognier also was stainless steel fermented, with balanced aromas of stone fruit and delicious ripe tropical fruit flavors and a weight on the palate distinctive of great Viognier.

“We are honored and excited that for the third year in a row, Putah Creek Winery wines have been recognized by the nation’s leading wine experts,” Glaeser said. “We look forward to continuing to offer wines that bring exceptional quality and value.”

The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition has evolved since its founding in 1983, expanding its eligibility to wineries throughout the United States. Formally established as the largest competition of American wines in the world in 2008, the Chronicle contest included more than 4,736 wine entries. This year, the competition continued to uphold this title with 5,050 entries from 23 states.

Putah Creek Winery, located on 60 acres in South Davis, was founded in 2004 by Gene and Cathy Glaeser. The winery produces 11 different wines, including Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.

Putah Creek Winery creates handcrafted, high quality wines that are balanced and approachable upon release, the company said.  The winery hosts two annual events that are open to the public, a spring and fall open house.

Wine from Putah Creek Winery is sold at the Davis Food Co-Op, Nugget Markets in Davis and select local restaurants. Wines also may be ordered on the winery’s website.
