Get the details on who won and who walked away with nuthin’. From wine to food purveyors, winning gold at the Harvest Fair is big business for the folks who keep our palates happy. And really, you know you’re dying to know who’s on top this year…
- Wine winners from port to pinot noir. Getting a Double Gold in this category means serious cache with local drinkers. Among the top sips this year: Adobe Road ziinfanel, Loxton Cellars port, Clos du Bois cabernet sauvignon, Buena Vista pinot noir and more. Download all the winners…and keep in mind that many of these are great values (for future purchasing reference). Amateur winemakers also get noticed. Top sweepstake winners were Doug Cover’s Syrah and Bruce & Linda Hagen’s Gewurztraminer. BiteClub sends a shout out to pal Timo Rivetti for a bronze and silver in the Syrah category. Go Timo! See all the winners
- Food categories are broken down by Delis (kudos to Korbel and Angelo’s, see all winners); Desserts, Gift Baskets, Olive Oil, Vinegar, Cakes, Bread and Appetizers.

I have been to the Harvest Fair the past 4 years. This years event was lackluster. No energy, some very good wines. If you ask me it is becoming more biased. Is Dry Creek Vineyards Fume Blanc really the best white wine in the county? come on judges! Nothing against Dry Creek Vineyards they are a good producer. Once again way to many medals awarded. If we want this event to be taken seriously outside the county of Sonoma the judging really needs to be looked at. When almost everything gets a medal it means nothing.
Heh, we were right next to the Adobe Road booth when they won. It was really exciting. We tasted quite a few great wines and some great food. Grampa Moses(?) winery had an awesome cab sauv, as did Tin Barn. J. Rickards had a really nice meritage. My only beef remains the same after going to this event for the last five years: Open a darn window or something! It’s a sweatbox in there. I’ve gone from wearing a full suit and tie the first year to wearing linen and flip flops and I’m still overheated in there.
