In mid-June, 18 judges met in Paso Robles and blind-tasted 803 wines from 165 wineries in the 17th annual Central Coast Wine Competition. The competition includes 10 coastal counties from Alameda to Ventura. Best of Show went to Solis Winery's 2018 Fiano from Santa Clara Valley. It also scored a Double Gold Medal (all judges in agreement) and the Best of Class award (Other White Wine category) and the overall Best White Wine. This is the second year in a row that a white wine has won the Best of Show award. In 2018, Alara Cellars' Grenache Blanc took home the coveted award.
