Nominee American Winery of the Year
JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery is being recognized by the magazine as a pioneer "that fostered tremendous growth of viticulture in Paso Robles," producing "some of the country's most highly regarded wines." JUSTIN is also lauded as "a true tourist magnet" for its Tasting Room, luxury JUST Inn Suites and Restaurant at JUSTIN - making it the first winery on the Central Coast to offer all three options.
"It is an incredible honor to be nominated for such an important award by Wine Enthusiast," says Justin Baldwin, founder of JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery. "When I founded the winery over 35 years ago, I never could have dreamed that our vision of making world class Bordeaux-style blends in Paso Robles would be so successful. It's humbling and exciting to have Wine Enthusiast and Adam and Sybil Strum recognize our incredible work over the decades to produce world-class wines."
Each year, the editors of Wine Enthusiast honor individuals and companies that have made outstanding achievements and contributions in the wine and spirits world. The Paso Robles AVA won the award for Wine Region of the Year in 2013. The winners of the 2015 Wine Star Awards will be announced on November 3rd and honored at a gala black-tie dinner in New York City on January 25, 2016.
