Attention, fine wine shoppers: Lodi is now growing some first-class Pinot Noir! At least, this is what a discriminating panel thought about the 2010 Ripken Vineyards Lodi Pinot Noir ($20) when they awarded it a Gold medal and “Best of Class (of Lodi)” this past spring during the judging process of the California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition.

To attain a Gold in this particular competition, wines like Ripken’s Pinot Noir are blind-tasted right alongside Pinot Noirs from the entire state, including vaunted regions like Sonoma, Santa Barbara and Monterey. Out of the entered 2,625 wines of all types examined by 72 judges, only 207 wines earned Golds.
