Ledger David Cellars – Vineyard and Winery in Southern Oregon

Ledger David’s Year in Review: Awards & Accolades in 2015

Posted on

As we ring in 2016 with new wines so festive and bright, we want to take a moment to pause and celebrate the past – vintages that mark where we’ve been and that have helped shape where we are headed (hint: we’re aiming for “up”).

We are proud that all of our wines are made with single vineyard fruit from our estate in Talent, Oregon. Each bottle is handcrafted to reflect the highest quality in wine making. Blends still excite us and we aim to use our best fruit in these endeavors, which seems to be paying off. Several of our awards this year were earned for our Orion’s Nebula, Dark Night and Epitome of Three – all unique red blends in their own right. Our whites are catching up, too, indicative when our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and 2013 Chenin Blanc both scored 90+ points and were named ‘Editor’s Choice’ by the Wine Enthusiast – one of the world’s leading resources for wine news – this past August.

Here’s a snapshot of awards won in 2015…and, thanks for “indulging” us this time!
