Double Gold Awarded to Delgado Family Vineyards
Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. is not only an expert gynecomastia surgeon; he is now an expert in the production of fine wine! More than 10 years ago the Delgado family acquired a vineyard in Sonoma Valley. The wines produced at that time were good, but good isn’t good enough for Dr. Delgado who is a perfectionist in every way! The Delgado’s hard work paid off with double gold awards for their wines at the 2017 Wine Competition sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle.
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Wine competition is considered the largest competition in the world for American wines. This year marks the Chronicle’s wine event with over 7,000 entrants, and 28 states were represented.
The judging panels are from different major wine locales which give diversity for the selection of just a few exclusive wines from the thousands of participants.
The wine competition, which has been a favorite Bay Area event for years, is open to the public for wine tasting paired with tasty appetizers.
