    As a long-time wine sales professional, I must say no one seems to care about gold medals or medals of any type anymore. Twenty years ago they mattered, but not now. All power is concentrated in The Wine Advocate and The Wine Spectator. We don’t even enter in medal competitions anymore as they just don’t generate results. In fact, it is almost embarrassing to use medals as POS if you are serious about your wines and winemaking.
