The now infamous “Judgment of Paris” was a wine competition held in Paris on May 24, 1976, organized by British Wine merchant Steven Spurrier. Mr. Spurrier personally chose all the California wines, including Veedercrest, for judging by a panel of noted French judges (including Sommeliers and or owners of Michelin three star Parisian restaurants, Directors of three of France’s most prestigious wine institutes, and French wine writers).

Veedercrest has been making award winning wines since its founding in 1972. It was one of the participants at the infamous Judgement of Paris. It has won significant awards at most of the major wine judgings around the world.
