Milagro’s estate grown wines earn highest accolades
Milagro Farm Vineyards & Winery’s newly released 2012 Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc was awarded “Best of San Diego County” and a Double Gold Medal at the California-wide San Diego County Fair Commercial Wine Competition.
This Sauvignon Blanc also won “Best Sauvignon Blanc” at the Winemaker Challenge competition and “Platinum” at the San Diego International Wine Competition.
The newly released 2012 Estate Grown Rosé of Sangiovese recently won “Best of Show Rosé” in the Winemaker Challenge.
Winemaker Jim Hart leads every aspect from planting to bottling, which is all done on site at the winery, notes Audrey Koniges, the winery’s marketing manager. Hart is a second generation winemaker having learned the craft from his father, Joe Hart of Hart Winery in Temecula.
“I think it goes to further validate what we’re doing up here. Everyone says you can’t make white wine in Ramona, so that’s disproved. I hope people take notice and that people in San Diego realize we have some really nice wines in our backyard,” said Hart.
These white wines join the winery’s award-winning red wines like the 2010 Estate Grown Barbera, which has taken home Gold medals at both the Winemaker Challenge and the Riverside International Wine Competition. Located at 18750 Littlepage Road, Milagro Farm Vineyards & Winery has been producing estate grown wines since 2006 and opened to the public in December 2011. The winery features 11 estate grown varietals and 10,000 vines, making it Ramona’s largest winery. For tasting room hours and more information, see www.milagrofarmvineyards.com or call 760-787-0738.
