Tour Alumni Score Big in San Fran Wine Competition

By August 11, 2010Wineries

Elk Run VineyardsNeill Bassford knew his wines were getting better and better, but when his Cab Franc won the Best of Varietal Award by the San Francisco Wine Competition, his efforts were validated. Elk Run ’08 Cabernet Franc is with some great company and the honor is especially gratifying to partners Neill & Margie Bassford and Bob & Susan Cecil. Neill’s own words sum it best: “All I can say is that we are really happy to see an East Coast winery beat a bunch of California wineries with a red wine.”

The Bassfords and Cecils have been on many Wine Lovers Tours and keep on coming back for more: they’ll be with us on both the Rhone and Provence tours this Fall.
