(NAPA, Calif.) - The World Wine Tasting was an audacious comparison of the leading wines from five countries . This was not another Paris tasting but more of a "Coming Out" for Jarvis winery.

When the results were made known, William Jarvis commented, "It was a good 'Coming Out'. I'm happy with our wines that placed First but it doesn't lessen my respect for the other World Wines, they all were great as always."

For the past 20 years, Dimitri Tchelistcheff and William Jarvis have dedicated themselves to making world class wines. Until now they have kept a modest profile but for the first time are emerging from their mountain cavern to showcase Jarvis wines along with the very top wines from other countries of the world.

Three categories of wine were blind tasted, Bordeaux Blends, Tempranillos and Chardonnays. The wines in the three tasting categories came from France, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The wine and their rankings are all shown below.

Jarvis, "a journey into the earth"...

The Jarvis wines are made totally underground in our 45,000 square foot cave, an eco-friendly facility that houses fully operational wine production and cooperage as well as the winery offices and hospitality space. The focus on quality begins in the selection of the vineyard micro climates. A total of 37 acres were cherry picked from the 1,320 acre Jarvis Estate. Limited-production, luxury wines that total less than 9,000 cases annually are the result of this commitment to world class wines.
