West Coast Wine CompetitionJerry Starr, Santa Cruz Wine Examiner, discusses Villa del Monte Winery and other award-winning wineries in his recent article, There’s Gold in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Of the 1200 wines entered in the 2011 West Coast Wine Competition, only about ten percent were awarded gold medals.  So, you can understand how proud we are to have been awarded two gold medals and one silver medal:

Gold: 2009 Pinot Noir Reserve Santa Cruz Mountains Regan Vineyard
Gold: 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains Villa Festa Vineyard  
Silver: 2009 Merlot Reserve Carneros Moon Vineyard  

These wines are available for tasting at the winery.  You can purchase these wines at the winery, on the web site, or at Summit Store in Los Gatos.
