Tasting Gold in Calaveras Wine Country - 2021 SF Chronicle Wine Competition

Updated: Mar 11



The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the biggest in the world. Starting out as the Cloverdale Citrus Fair in 1983 with only 45 entries from 15 wineries, it has grown to over 5,700 entries this year from over 1,000 wineries. With 48 professional judges overseeing the competition, it includes the most extensive list of winners across all categories. Even with the numerous entries only a select few can win. 


We like to call Calaveras Wine Country a "wine-lovers best-kept secret", but with many of our wineries being recognized nationally, the secret is getting harder to keep.
