The 25th San Diego International Wine Competition was staged April 19-20 at the Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego. More than 1100 medals were awarded, including 138 Golds and 408 Silvers.

I congratulate the winners on their fine showing before a star-studded panel of 35 wine experts, including Chief Judge Michael Franz, the Editor of Wine Review Online.
