The 29th annual San Francisco International Wine Competition proved to be as comprehensive as ever. Check out the complete list of winners on the  SF Wine Competition web site.

Of particular interest for me is that a Riesling from Australia won Best Riesling, a Clos Du Bois Chardonnay won Best Chardonnay and an Edna Valley Pinot Noir beat out Sonoma and Napa for Best Pinot Noir.

In total, the judges tasted, scored and ranked 4,274 wines from 1,195 wineries. They awarded 248 gold medals, 1,150 silver medals and 1,514 bronze metals.
