A few of our local wineries did very well at the 2005 San Francisco Chronicle's Wine Competition held Jan. 26-28. Sandi Bohner and Bill Webster's Little Valley Vineyards received a Silver award for their 2000 Tempranillo. Congratulations to Randy and Lisa Lynch of Bennett Lane Winery for capturing a Silver Award for their 2002 Cabernet and 2002 Maximus.
