poster2016Honorary Winery of the Year: Seghesio Family Vineyards  Ted Seghesio

Ted believes winemaking truly begins in the vineyard: “You must do all you can to produce the highest quality fruit, then guide them into fine wine,” he explains. “We strive to produce wines that offer the highest expression of the land, guided by our extensive knowledge of our vineyards.”

Ted’s wines have been named to the Wine Spectator’s annual Top 100 List seven times. He has been honored with Decanter’s Best American Red Trophy in 2007, by Food & Wine’s American Wine Awards and by the San Francisco Chronicle’s Wine Competition as Winemaker of the Year.
