Domenico Winery Wins Gold at SFIWC

With harvest wrapped up and the holidays here, there’s nothing like some good news to bring the year to a spectacular close. What could be better than discovering that our wines won gold and silver medals at the SFIWC (San Francisco International Wine Competition!)

The SFIWC is one of the oldest and most prestigious wine competitions. It began in 1980, as part of the world-renowned Tasting Alliance. Each year, the SFIWC evaluates wines through a rigorous blind tasting process. Their panel of judges consist of well-respected experts in the wine industry, with some of the best palates in the world. The SFIWC’s judging process ensures that each wine receives a thorough, honest, and precise evaluation.

Knowing the prestige of this competition, we decided to enter 6 of our wines into the competition. We did it without expectations, just curiosity. On November 24th, we received an exciting email from the SFIWC that out of the 6 Domenico Winery wines entered, 5 had won awards. In fact, our 2016 Amador County Zinfandel received a gold medal!

This news is beyond exciting for our team. A gold medal reflects the blood, sweat, and tears our winemaking team puts into each and every wine. Winemaking isn’t an easy job. But, it is one we absolutely love. Why?It allows us to carry on our family traditions, the ones we aspire to share with everyone, through every single glass of wine. Awards from SFIWC help highlight the love and craftsmanship we pour into our wines.

Please see below for the full list of Domenico Winery’s SFIWC award-winning wines!


Gold Medal:
2016 Zinfandel, Amador County
The Domenico Winery team would like to extend a big thank you to SFIWC for such an honor. We are exceedingly grateful that you took the time to evaluate our wines.
We also couldn’t have made it this far without all of those who continually support Domenico Winery! Thank you to our Wine Club and Bacchus Winemaking Club members, along with every person who visits our Winery and Osteria, for being constant reminders of why we love what we do.
Let’s get the gold together next year, shall we?
