gold medal at the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine
Competition. There were 6800 wines from 1132 wineries entered in what is
known as the largest wine competition in North America held January 8

Going Coastal features grapes grown by the
Sauer family at Red Willow Vineyard. The winery donates a portion of the
proceeds from each of their wines to a local charity with the recipient
on this being the Coastal Interpretive
Center in nearby Ocean Shores, Washington. The label art is a watercolor
