Back on October 13 and 14, 2008, nearly 900 wines faced off and were judged by America's top wine buyers at the first ever US Professional Wine Buyers Competition, held in Santa Rosa, California.

Our group presented wines produced by estates associated with the Italian Flavor Consortium, imported and distributed in California by WineCountry.IT, L.L.C., and scored two silver medals and 10 bronze medals.

We were holding out for the medals in order to publish photographs of the winners along with their medals. Now that we have received and published the results of the National Women’s Wine Competition 2009™, we have decided to go ahead and publish the winner's list anyway, despite the fact that the medals have not been delivered yet.

Without further ado, here is the list of wines produced by estates associated with the Italian Flavor Consortium:
