Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2008 wins gold in San Francisco

Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2008 wins Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition

The San Francisco International Wine Competition is the largest, most influential international wine competition in America, judged by a prestigious panel of nationally recognized wine experts. Judging is based on a blind, consensual procedure. 2010 is the 30th anniversary of the competition; the event took place on June 18th, 19th and 20th at the Hotel Nikko located in downtown San Francisco.

Co-owner Stephen Farquharson said, “This is another great accolade for us at Wooing Tree. The result is a real pat on the back for the whole team from the vineyard through to the winery and the sales team in NZ and overseas, everyone puts in a lot of hard work. The 2008 vintage was one of the best growing seasons Central Otago has seen, perfect flowering and fruit set, followed by a warm and dry summer. Award-winning local winemaker Carol Bunn and her team at Vinpro made the wine. We are looking at entering the US market, so this result should help generate much wider interest”.

The Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2008 is no stranger to success, having already won gold this year at the Korea Wine Challenge 2010 and being awarded 5 stars and top 10 in the Cuisine Magazine Pinot Noir tasting. Wooing Tree has had a remarkable first few years, 6 trophies, numerous gold medals, 5 star ratings, and praise from wine writers worldwide. This is also the 2nd year in a row Wooing Tree Pinot Noir has won gold at San Francisco.

Wooing Tree is situated in the heart of Central Otago, New Zealand, next to the town of Cromwell and opposite the big fruit sculpture. The family owned single vineyard site specialises in Pinot Noir and also produces a Rosé and a still Blanc de Noir called “Blondie” from the same grape variety.

Wooing Tree wines are available at fine wine stores and restaurants through out New Zealand and in many overseas countries. See

Wooing Tree is currently exported to Australia, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, China, Canada (Ontario and Quebec) Hong Kong, Macua and Korea. We are seeking distribution in other countries, including the US.
