Time to celebrate! In one of the world’s oldest and largest blind wine tastings, Seattle-based non-alcoholic winery Jøyus took home two coveted awards.
Now in its 39th year, The San Francisco International Wine Competition is one of the oldest and largest rigorously blind wine competitions in the world. Held November 15th-16th in California, Jøyus was among over 3,000 entries submitted from over 31 countries. Which makes the gold and bronze medals we were awarded for our premium non-alcoholic wines even more impressive!
“I set out to create a line of premium non-alcoholic wines that taste just as great and feel just as special as alcohol wine,” says the sober Jøyus founder Jessica Selander. “I’m beyond happy the critics agree.”
The only premium non-alcoholic wine available to win not one, but two wine awards of such high caliber in an industry wine competition, our Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Rosé took Gold with it’s pacific northwest notes of ripe blackberries, summer strawberries and California citrus blossoms. The Non-Alcoholic Sparkling White took Bronze with its notes of crisp green apple, fragrant fall pear and a ripe melon finish.
“I’ve always said my non-alcoholic wines taste like wine. But now I’m able to say they taste like and are award winning wine. It’s a great feeling.” says founder Jessica. “Hopefully this helps bring us just a little closer to normalizing non-drinking.”
