The 2007 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Award Winners.

The 2007 professional wine judging took place at the Cloverdale Citrus Fair during the week of January 8, 2007. 55 professional wine judges representing trade, education, media, retail, and restaurants throughout the United States evaluated 3,800 wines entered by 1,572 wineries from 20 states.

Wines were awarded as bronze, silver, gold, and double gold (unanimous gold by the judges). In addition, there were Best of Class awards given for each of the wine judging categories and the prestigious Sweepstake Awards for the top sparkling, white, red, and dessert wines.

The judges were impressed with award winners but also noted that the overall quality of all the wines entered was very high.
