The Winery SF's 2012 North Coast Pinot Noir earned 2nd place at the 2014 Pinot Noir Summit, where close to 500 Pinot Noirs were compared from around the globe. A diverse panel of 40 wine professionals, including famed Pinot Noir writer, William "Rusty" Gaffney, M.D., the Prince of Pinot, judged nearly 500 Pinot Noir wines in January and selected 44 Pinot Noir wines to be served at the "blind tasting" at the Pinot Noir Summit. On March 9, 2014 at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio, hundreds of wine enthusiasts and experts in the wine industry attended the Pinot Noir Summit to select the top Pinot Noir in the United States.

Last week, the winners of the Pinot Noir Summit were announced and The Winery SF's 2012 North Coast Pinot Noir earned 2nd place for the Top Pinot Noir in America. More incredibly, this wine was one of the most affordable wines in the contest at only $29.99 a bottle.

"I love Pinot Noir but paying $50 or $60 a bottle for a great Pinot Noir is often difficult for people," winemaker Bryan Kane said. "It thrills me to be able to present a world class Pinot Noir that is reasonably priced for the average consumer."

Additionally, in January, The Winery SF's 2010 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon took home the "Best of Class" award in the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition – which marks the first time since Prohibition that a San Francisco-based winery has won top honors from the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Winery SF's outstanding 2012 North Coast Pinot Noir will be featured at the upcoming 10th annual Pinot Days in San Francisco, the biggest Pinot Noir tasting in the world. The event will take place on Saturday, June 21 at City View at the Metreon in San Francisco. Tickets for the public are $75 or $125 (VIP) and can be purchased online.
