Lamoreaux Landing Wins Double-Gold

Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars located in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, in the small rural town of Lodi, is no stranger to winning gold and double gold in wine competitions. This time the awards of “Double Gold,” and “Best of its Class” were awarded to this distinguished winery for not just one, but two spectacular wines. The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition found Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars newly released 2005 Chardonnay Reserve and the 2005 Chardonnay both to be worthy of this distinction.“We are truly honored to receive these two prestigious awards for “Double Gold” and “Best of Class” for both of our Chardonnays,” stated Mark Wagner, owner of Lamoreaux Landing. “It supports our success in past competitions and builds a consistent record of great Chardonnay from Lamoreaux Landing. We owe much of our success to our winemaker, Staci Nugent and our above average vineyard crew that expertly tends the vines.”The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the largest competition of American wines in the world and is comprised of fifty-five professional wine judges representing trade, education, media, retail and restaurants throughout the United States. Held at the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds in California, the judges evaluated 3,800 wines submitted by 1,573 wineries that were located in 20 different states. Founded in 1983, this competition has evolved and grown and is sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle, with www.winejudging.com as producer of the event.
