Bishop's Vineyard wines win awards
Two Bishop's Vineyard wines won silver awards at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
The Bishop's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, both 2013 vintages grown in Contra Costa County, were recognized in the annual competition, which this year drew more than 7,100 entries.The cabernet retails for $36.99 and the zin for $27.99.
Bishop's Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown on Catholic Cemeteries' land and produced under contract by Rock Wall Winery, Alameda. The effort by Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services provides altar wine at no cost to parishes in the diocese.
A premium line of wines is available through the Bishop's Vineyard Wine Club and made available at various fundraisers.
A portion of the income from the Bishop's Vineyard Wine Club supports numerous charities and fundraisers, and provides tuition assistance to needy students wishing to attend a Catholic school.
