Historic Veedercrest, a pioneering Napa Valley winery and participant in the infamous Judgment of Paris, won a Double Gold in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition for its 2006 St. Helena Cabernet, and won Silver for its 2006 Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Double Gold means that every judge awarded the wine a Gold.
The wines will be available for tasting this coming Saturday afternoon in the VIP Pavilion at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition tasting, Ft. Mason.
Veedercrest was founded in 1972 after a visit from legendary Andre Tchelicheff. Andre invited himself to dinner after hearing about founder Al Baxter’s good quality amateur wines. Andre rated the wines “excellent,” and recommended “going commercial.” At the Paris tasting, the wines were recognized as the “most French in style.” Veedercrest wines have been served at White House dinners and for a visit of the Pope.
