Best of Class- San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Was really excited to receive this award at one of the top wine competitions. This is a big style wine that is 100% Merlot and was aged for 20 months in barrel.
Only 70 cases produced.

I really am looking forward to trying to improve up on this wine and will have some ideas for future vintages. I will also continue to produce a Bordeaux style blend with it and add some Malbec and Petite Verdot from our ranch blended with some super premium hillside Cabernet Sauvignon.

Costa Azul Winery will be the future home of Christopher Cameron Vineyards

Here is my architect's (Brian Church, Del Mar) rendition of the new build that is going to be taking place in about 3 months. Winery will have a Mediterranean style restaurant and a demonstration vineyard. All of the wine will be produced on site and we will be able to hold around 300 barrels of wine.
