We are very proud to announce that our 2009 Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir was named the Runner-Up recently at the Pinot Cup competition as part of Chef Charlie Palmer’s “Pigs and Pinot” event in Healdsburg, California; distinguishing itself from among a crowd of 60 international Pinot producers.

Pigs and Pinot is a weekend-long epicurean event that kicks-off with the Pinot Cup competition. In this annual wine competition, 60 hand-picked Pinot Noirs compete in a blind-tasting in hopes to be named “the best of the best” by a renowned judging panel. This year’s panel included Jon Bonne, Wine Editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, Laurie Daniel, Wine Writer for the San Jose Mercury News and Master Sommelier, Fred Dame. This is the second year that Twomey has been selected to participate and the first year we were awarded the “Runner-Up” title!

Thirteen years later, our spirit of innovation drives us to handcraft wine according to: Appellation, Single Vineyard and Estate wines.
