THE TIGHTROPE WINERY: It’s all about balance
Tightrope Winery burst out of the gate with its very first vintage, winning six medals in three competitions, including a double gold for its 2012 Rosé at the Northwest Wine Summit. Since then, its wines have been honored internationally, most recently at the 2018 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada, with two gold medals, four silver and one bronze. This followed on the heels of a ten-medal performance at the California-based Dan Berger’s International Awards.
