The 2018 Central Coast Vinegar Competition Unveils Winners
Best Western Plus Black Oak
July 24, 2018
California’s Central Coast is famous for its culinary prowess, and a large part of that fame is down to the exquisite range of fresh produce and artisan ingredients that can be found close to hand in this gorgeous part of the world.
Enter the region’s artisan vinegar producers, which are celebrated each year at the
Central Coast Vinegar Competition
. The competition, which is professionally judged at five state fairs across California each year, aims to educate consumers about the quality and style of the fine bottles of vinegar produced right here in the USA.
At this year’s
California Mid State Fair
tasting, the Best in Show went to Aris Vinegar’s Pomegranate Vinegar (Paso Robles). The honour came after judges awarded it a Double Gold Medal in the Other Fruit Class.
Other Gold Medal recipients included: Virginia Vinegar Works’ White Wine Vinegar (Shipman, VA); Virginia Vinegar Works’ Red Wine Vinegar – Heritage Blend; Real Good Vinegar’s IPA Beer Vinegar (Nashville, TN) and Straw Ridge Natural’s Red Wine Vinegar (Paso Robles).
The Silver Medal recipients included: Virginia Vinegar Works’ Red Wine Vinegar – Norton; Virginia Vinegar Works’ Malt Vinegar; Straw Ridge Natural’s Rose Petal Vinegar and Supreme Vinegar’s Blueberry Vinegar (Bensalem, PA).
The blind tasting took place at the California Mid-State Fair and the panel of judges for the vinegar tasting was led by Chief Judge Tim McDonald of Wine Spoken Here.
