Wine Ratings & Awards for Q1 2016

I wanted share with you some of the wineries that I have wrote about or recommended, on their updated wine ratings or awards received in Q1 2016. This shows that many of those wineries and winemakers who I published an article on in the last twelve weeks have done extremely well. Personally, I am pleased that they have achieved or received these accolades.  

One or more will be featured shortly providing a “promotional incentive” to celebrate their good fortune with the viewers of “California Wines & Wineries” via Facebook, website or Instagram. Be on the lookout for the announcement and code CAWINEQ2 to save on those wineries offering special deals (discounts and/or complimentary shipping) on their award winning wines!
