’22 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Results

The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is currently the largest wine competition in North America. All wineries in the United States, Canada, and Mexico are eligible to enter the wine competition. Professional wine judges are sourced throughout the major wine regions in North America to offer a diversity of expertise to each judging panel. A major advantage to wineries entering the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the vast recognition and outreach of the award-winning wines including the published wine award special section of the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.

This year Philip Carter Winery entered 4 of our unique Virginia wines and all of our wines walked away with medals! We are overjoyed at the recognition that our wines are receiving not only in our home state but even on the west coast.

Congratulations to Philip, our winemaker Tony, and all of the Philip Carter staff!
