"Who would argue against the fact that Tempranillo has a place among the pantheon of the world's greatest wine grapes...?"

"...Earl and Hilda Jones still remain at the head of the class... impeccably crafted wines-phenomenal by any standard, even Spain's."

Since its introduction in 1980, the San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC) has been setting the standard for professional wine judging.

The largest and most influential international wine competition in America, the San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC) has been setting the standard for professional wine judging since its debut in 1980. Now in its 36th year, the SFIWC maintains the highest level of integrity with a blind-tasting system performed by a highly experienced panel of internationally acclaimed wine experts.

A SFIWC medal has been established as a reliable indication of wine excellence, and wines recognized as medal-worthy by our judges are universally understood to be among the very best.

The 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition was held on June 9th to 12th.
