Gold Medal Winner! It's mostly a joke, but Companion did submit their 2018 wines to the first ever international canned wine competition (that's a thing). This Malvasia took home the gold!
The Malvasia vineyard sits at the southern end of the Vaca Mountains. The soils are composed of volcanic sediment and alluvium. Low hanging fruit is tended to by the local wild boars.
As Companion started making Pinot Gris with Scott the following year, this Malvasia is the last (and best!) vintage of the wine.
