More Accolades for Seamus Wines

corkWe’re big fans of Seamus wines, and have been for several years.  There are lots of reasons, first and foremost being that they make great wines.  Their 2012 Atwood Ranch Reserve Cabernet is one of the best wines we’ve everIMG_1963 had, anywhere, anytime.  You can’t get it just yet, as they haven’t officially released, but it is coming soon.  The rest of their range is pretty stellar as well, including a new rosé, Debutante, which is taking parts of the country by storm.  You can read more about Seamus and their wines in our last review by clicking here.

Jim Jr. will personally pour Séamus’s winning wines at this 42nd annual competition awards showcase of Sonoma County’s “grand harvest” which continues to result in world-class wines, beers and culinary wealth. Each October, thirsty travelers from across the US come to Santa Rosa, CA to participate in a complete farm to table experience inspired by Sonoma County’s farmers, ranchers, vintners and producers. Jim Jr. is ready to shake their hands and pour them a glass of his prized wines.

Séamus Wines produces 1200 cases annually of ultra-premium, hand crafted California wines made from fruit purchased from the very finest vineyards and appellations for each varietal sourced.
