TERLATO A TOP WINNER AT LARGEST COMPETITION OF AMERICAN WINES IN THE WORLD

Sanford and Terlato Family Vineyards Take Home High HonorsnnIt was against the odds. A Brooklyn born kid now in his seventies was heralded as one of the top wine producers at the recent San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, but the accolades are no accident; Anthony Terlato had a dream and he had set his sights on the goal of producing great wines. Among the 4,235 wine entrants, 60 professional judges awarded medals to 20 Terlato wines at the prestigious competition, including Best of Class for his Sanford 2006 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills and Double Gold for two wines — his eponymous label Terlato Family Vineyards 2005 Napa Valley Devil’s Peak Bordeaux Blend and the Sanford 2006 Pinot Noir-Sanford and Benedict Vineyard. Acclaimed as San Francisco’s premier tasting event, the Chronicle event features award-winning wines from across the country. nn”When you import the likes of Gaja, Chapoutier and Two Hands, among the many ‘greats,’ you set out to make your own wines with certain trepidation,” said Terlato Wines Chairman Anthony J. Terlato. “It’s a ridiculously high standard to aspire to, quite frankly. And yet that has been our goal, to someday produce wines that would stand alongside the best of the best. And thanks to our hard-working and passionate winemakers, all of whom share our vision of making the greatest wines from the great regions of California, that day is getting closer.”nnAdditional Terlato family-owned wines that garnered San Francisco Chronicle medals include: Gold Medals for Alderbrook 2006 Estate Zinfandel, Chimney Rock 2005 Elevage and Chimney Rock 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon; Silver Medals for Alderbrook 2006 Wagon Wheel Zinfandel, Alderbrook 2006 Confluence, Alderbrook 2006 Carignane, Luke Donald Collection 2005 Claret, Rutherford Hill 2005 Merlot, Rutherford Hill 2007 Rose, Sanford 2006 Chardonnay-Santa Barbara County, Sanford 2006 Pinot Noir-La Rinconada Vineyard; and Bronze Medals for Alderbrook 2006 Pinot Noir, Alderbrook 2006 Three Goose Zinfandel, Alderbrook 2006 Old Barn Zinfandel, Alderbrook 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel, Alderbrook 2006 Wind Machine Zinfandel and Terlato Family Vineyards 2007 Pinot Grigio.nnProduced for Terlato Wines International
