Earlier this summer, the Petite White won "Chairman's Best of Class" at the 2009 Long Beach Grand Cru, held in California. From the 1,600 wines entered, Sakonnet's Petite White was among only 50 wines to get the "Chairman's Best of Class" designation at this international wine challenge.
Winemaker Elaine Bernier combined the vineyards' 2007 Vidal Blanc and the 2007 Gewurztraminer to create this award-winning blend.
The winery on Main Road in Little Compton, R.I., can be contacted at (401) 635-8486 or www.sakonnetwine.com. It is a member of the Coastal Wine Trail.
