For years St. James Winery has said, “Friendship School White very well may be the perfect white wine.” Now we’ve got proof!
The 2014 Pacific Rim Wine Competition selected St. James Winery’s Friendship School White wine as its Grand Champion, besting approximately 1,200 other wines entered to be named top wine at the 29th annual competition, a two day event held April 23-24 in San Bernardino, California.
“This Grand Champion award is very affirming to the high standards our winemaking team strives for here at St. James Winery,” said Peter Hofherr, CEO of St. James Winery. “We are quite pleased because not only did our Friendship School White wine win at Pacific Rim in California, but our Riesling also won the John Rose Best of Show Award for Riesling at the Finger Lakes Competition just a few weeks earlier.”
In addition to Grand Champion, St. James Winery won four other Gold / Best of Class awards at Pacific Rim for its Moscato, Riesling, Friendship School Red, and Strawberry. St. James Winery Peach wine also received a gold medal, and six other wines received silver or bronze medals.
All of St. James Winery’s wines are available in 750ml bottles; however, Friendship School White and Friendship School Red are also available in convenient eco-friendly one liter pouches, each of which contains the equivalent of six glasses of wine.
In recognition of the results at the Pacific Rim and Finger Lakes wine competitions, St. James Winery is offering a $15 flat rate shipping special for a limited time from May 5-15. Case orders of 12 bottles or more also receive the standard 10% case discount.
