AWARDS

Havens Winery is proud to announce that our wines are receiving accolades from around the world. Over the last twelve months, three of our wines have been recognized with 90-point, or higher, scores from the experts at Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. The Fifty Best awarded our 2013 Merlot a gold medal from among 21 current releases of the varietal, and just three wines out of 70 topped it in the rigorous judging by Jancis Robinson, as described by Elaine Chukan Brown in Napa Merlot – the Cinderella Grape. We’re quite proud of what our winemaking team has been creating with Merlot. We hope you come to enjoy Havens wines as much as the judges do!
