Cardella winery scores gold in state fair competition

Results of the 2013 California State Fair Wine Competition were released and, as usual, there were a few surprises. With more than 2,600 wines entered and 1,847 medals awarded, I like to sift through the winners and find good deals. I usually focus on the wines that win Best of Class, double gold or gold medals. What caught my attention this year was that the Best of Class barbera came from Mendota, in Fresno County. The 2010 District 13 Fattoria Cardella L’aquedotto Vineyard, California, won a gold medal (94 points) and was selected best barbera in the state. Cheers to San Joaquin Valley grapes!
