The smiling faces of Steve Zigant and Steve Burman receiving their awards says it all. Having just won Best of Show at California Wines and Wineries Cabernet Franc Wine Competition from the People’s Choice Judges, 3 Steve’s is on a roll. They also won both Best of Class and a Gold & Silver medal from the Professional Judges. This is for their Cienega Valley, Dry Farmed Cabernet Franc from San Benito County.

In addition they won a Gold and Silver medals for their 2016 Livermore, Sachau Vineyard Cabernet Franc!


How 3 Steves Winery started was three friends (Steve Burman, Steve Melander and Steve Zigant), all in the wine business, wanted to own their own winery. They insisted on meticulously working their own vineyard as well as bringing fruit back to their winery. Thus their tagline “3 Friends Striving to Make the Perfect Wine”. They opened the property in 2013 after a few years producing wine at a custom crush operation.
