2021 results

Posted by Jenny Semmler on

919 Wines has had another solid year of wine show results in 2021 although we entered a reduced number of shows this year due to a smaller 2020 vintage. We like to benchmark our wines against other winemakers and regions so that we continue to keep the quality of our product high, and our wines in line with changing consumer tastes and winemaking trends.
