Congratulations, Dave!

This just in from the Gilroy Dispatch:

Gilroy - One man is a fourth generation vintner, the other escaped the rat race to ply a craft that is closer to his heart. Both were honored for the fruit of their labor at the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Local vintners Tim Slater of Sarah's Vineyard and Gino Fortino of Fortino Winery brought home medals for their submissions to what is widely known to be the largest competition of American wines in the world.

Sarah's Vineyard took home two gold medals for their 2003 Reserve and Estate Pinot Noirs while Fortino Winery walked away with a silver medal for a particularly special Cabernet Sauvignon.
