2017 Harvest Challenge Entrant – Fortunati Vineyards Napa Valley

This year’s Harvest Challenge was once again a rousing success with more than 1,025 entries received from Canada, New York, Argentina, Australia and all parts in between. Our participating judges were truly some of the very best from across the US and Canada. They awarded 54 Best of Class, 37 Double Gold and 145 Gold medals with 23 “Best of” AVAs. We are pleased to announce the official results in time for you to promote which of your award-winners to purchase during the holidays.

At Fortunati, we pride ourselves on using natural farming and winemaking techniques to deliver the best expression of our wines. Dry farming, natural-yeast fermentations, and other natural and sustainable practices produce wine that showcases the unique land and climate of the Napa Valley. We produce traditional Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blends that made Napa Valley famous, but believe that variety is the spice of life, and enrich our portfolio with a wide diverstiy, including Syrah, Pinot Noir, Viognier, Malbec and more luscious varietals in our lineup of hand-crafted, small batch wines.
