The Winners of the 2023 Sunset International Wine Competition
Hundreds of bottles of wine were tasted (and tasted and tasted). These were the judges’ picks.
It’s a wonderful, wide, wide world of wine and each year we host the Sunset International Wine Competition to steer you to bottles worth seeking out. We assembled an esteemed panel of judges and tasted our way through hundreds of bottles that collectively represent what’s being produced through the West and beyond. And then we awarded the medals. The wines and wineries listed here deliver incredible flavor, the highest production standards, and, above all, deliciousness in the glass. Cheers to the deserving winners who have earned their place in this directory of exceptional wines!
