(CERES, Calif.) – Three wines from Charles Shaw Winery, the super-value brand also known as “Two Buck Chuck,” have received high honors at a large and respected wine competition. The 2011 Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Charles Shaw Merlot and 2012 Charles Shaw White Zinfandel – each won a Gold Medal at the 2013 Orange County Fair Wine Competition, while the 2011 Charles Shaw Chardonnay received a Bronze Medal. All are current vintage California appellation wines that retail from $2.49 to $3.49 nationally.
“We have only winemakers and principals as judges in our fair,” said Competition Director Dennis Esslinger, “and what makes this especially significant is that we hold the largest competition with only California wines, over 2,500.”
“With this month's Consumer Reports Magazine making our Chardonnay a Best Buy and ranking it third of 10 wines rated costing up to ten times as much, it's been a great month for Charles Shaw,” said Fred Franzia, CEO of Bronco Wine Company, producer of Charles Shaw. “We thank the American people for recognizing our quality and value and also thank our retail partner, Trader Joe's.”
