Locus Wines won three awards at the 2015 Seattle Wine Awards, announced earlier in the month:
- The inaugural vintage red, 2012 Locus Syrah from the Stone Tree Vineyard won the DOUBLE GOLD in the $20-$35 Syrah category.
- The 2014 Locus Semillon from Dineen Vineyards took GOLD honors in the White Bordeaux category.
- The 2013 Locus Grenache/Syrah blend won SILVER medal in the Rhone style Reds category.
The gold medal winners are going to be celebrated at a special event in September, aptly called 2015 Gold Medal Experience.
These awards come on the tail of other awards from earlier in the year. The last year’s sold out Rosé (2013 Locus Rosé, 50% Mourvedre 50% Cinsault) had won the Bronze medal at the Texsom International Wine Awards.
The official release party for the new vintages (including the “award-winning” 2014 Locus Semillon and the 2013 Locus Grenache/Syrah blend and of course the Double Gold Syrah from 2012) will all be on hand, and a few more at the event.
