Eugene, Ore. - The San Francisco Chronicle's Annual Wine Competition is billed as "The Largest Competition of American Wines in the World" and based on the hundreds of wines listed in their 2017 Wine Competition Medal-Winning Wines list it would be hard to argue with them.  
Still riding the high from being named Wine Region of the Year, several of our South Willamette Wineries Association members participated and brought home awards in this year's competition.

Iris Vineyards winemaker Aaron Lieberman commented, "We're very pleased with the results of the competition. We strive to produce the highest quality wines possible in each vintage and are happy to see that reflected in these awards."

Congratulations to all Oregon wineries who received awards in this year's competition!
