Meet the Woman Behind our Wines | Alaina Waller | Bad Ass Winemaker
Meet Alaina, she’s one of our winemakers and she makes amazing wine. But don’t take our word for it. Recently, her 2016 Orgasmic Sangiovese from Columbia Valley, WA was awarded 92 points and won a Gold Medal in the San Francisco International Women’s Wine Competition. A Gold Medal is given to “An exceptional wine that is near the pinnacle of achievement in its category; sets the standard for all other wines of its type”. This gorgeous medium bodied wine offers hints of strawberry and dark cherry on the palate, with juicy plum and spicy highlights throughout and a smooth lingering finish.
Over 1150 wines were submitted into the competition and to bring home a Gold medal is quite an impressive achievement. Congratulations to Alaina!
