About News – Georgian Vintner Wins Medals in Los Angeles Competition

Georgian vintner GORELLI wins 5 medals at the 2012 Los Angeles Wine and Spirits Competition.

For 73 years, the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition has showcased the finest domestic and international vintages through a wine-tasting event that is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious in the United States.

An esteemed panel of judges uses a blind-tasting method, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism that has remained the competition’s foundation for seven decades.

This year, 3300 wines and several hundred spirits were tasted by a 75-member panel comprised of international judges, ranging from Master Sommeliers to chefs and wine writers.

Entries came from as far as Bulgaria and Israel.

Topping the list of Georgian vintners at the Los Angeles event was GORELLI, taking medals in 5 categories.

Congratulations on winning 1 silver and 4 bronze medals!
