Big Fish Wines Strikes Gold at Denver International Wine Competition

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 12, 2009) - Big Fish Wines hit the mother lode at the 2009 Denver International Wine Competition recently, winning top honors for its 2006 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. The wine has also medaled this year in the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco International Wine Competitions.

Hunter Landers, founder and general manager, was very pleased with the award. "It's great to be recognized by a premier and well known competition, and to compete against other well known and respected wines as Cakebread, Rodney Strong, and Pezzi King is a real honor."

The competition is the largest professional wine competition in the Rocky Mountain region, and is judged by a prestigious panel of Colorado wine professionals from the wine retail, wine wholesale, hospitality and culinary fields.
