Primitivo takes a Gold Medal at the Consumer Wine Awards

The People have spoken, and Rosa d'Oro Vineyards received a gold medal at the fifth annual Consumer Wine Awards held in Lodi, California. This one is particularly interesting because all of the judges are regular wine consumers rather than "industry professionals" - something we actually appreciate even more. There will be a pouring of the gold-medal wines on April 20th, and we will be there. Don't forget that the Kelseyville Olive Festival is happening the next day on the 21st as well!
