Friday July 12, 2013 marks the start of the California State Fair. The fair has been running since 1854 and judging wines since 1855. This year, Larson Family Winery was awarded a Gold Medal on our 2010 Larson Family Winery Chardonnay! We called Vella Cheese Company of Sonoma to arrange a tasting of our Chardonay and their Dry Aged Jack. Turns out, they won a Gold on their cheese! Their Dry Aged Special Select Monterey Jack is the perfect accompaniment to our Estate Chardonnay. On Friday, July 12 from 2-4 pm Larson and Vella are teaming up to share our Gold Medal winners. Come to the Larson Family Tasting Room and enjoy a complimentary tasting of our Gold Medal Chardonnay and Vella's Dry Aged Jack. Our winemaker Carolyn Craig will be here along with Chickie Vella of Vella Cheese. Out of 2,625 entries in the wine competition there were only 207 gold medals, so be sure to come in and enjoy two of the Gold medals won by Sonoma businesses!
