Now for the moment probably no one has been waiting for, the Walla Walla wine awards.
Best in Show
The award for Best in Show goes to Va Piano’s 2016 Rosé. I was so pleasantly surprised by this wine that I had to give it top honors. The duck approves too!
The award for Most Yummy goes to Va Piano’s 2012 Syrah. I am in love with this wine (even though the label is awful).
The award for Best Value goes to Gifford Hirlinger’s 2014 Stateline Red. At only $20 a bottle, this wine is the very good value for money.
The award for Best Label goes to Kontos’s 2014 Syrah. I often make the mistake of buying wine based on its label but there was no mistake with this bottle of wine. Good wine. Good label.
