The 1st Renaud Society Wine Competition was held 2009 in Walla Walla, Washington, and awarded the coveted Renaud Tastevin to Skylite Cellars for its 2006 Reserve. The 2nd Renaud Society Wine Competition was held 2011 in Napa Valley, California, and Skylite Cellars successfully defended its title with its Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007.
The beautiful gold tastevin, mounted on a crystal testimonial, is proudly displayed in their tasting room in Walla Walla, Washington. Many excellent wines were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals in a blinded judging by food and wine professionals, society commandeurs, and some of our research scientists. The Renaud Tastevin is a special honor bestowed on the highest scoring gold medal winner, and recognized as “best-in-show”.
