2006. After four tiers of judging the 154 wines entered in the 2006 Pacific
Coast Oyster Wine Competition, Dry Creek Vineyard's Dry Chenin Blanc
(2005) is again one of the 10 wines selected for the 2006 "Oyster
Award." Our Dry Chenin Blanc has won this award 7 out of 12 times,
and currently five years in a row.
Judgings of 20 finalist wines were held April 25 at the Water Grill
in Los Angeles, April 26 at One Market Restaurant in San Francisco and April 27 at Anthony’s Home Port at Shilshole
Bay in Seattle. Scores from the 36 oyster-loving judges, a mix of media,
restaurateurs, and retailers, in the three cities were combined to
select this year’s 10 equal ‘Oyster Award’ winners.
