Pebblestone Cellars of Phoenix was among the top three winners in the 2013 Southern Oregon World of Wine Festival. The wine competition featured 179 wines from 46 wineries, with a total of 13 gold medals awarded this year, including six "double" gold medals in which all three judges unanimously agreed on gold medal status.

Best of Show honors went to Pebblestone Cellars for its 2012 Viognier, to Spangler Vineyards, of Roseburg, for its 2010 Claret and to Cuckoo's Nest Cellars, of Cave Junction, for its 2012 Fizzé.

Several wineries received multiple awards, led by Schmidt Family Vineyards with six medals, and Pebblestone Cellars and Quady North with five medals each.

Judges were Christy Canterbury, an author, speaker and wine judge based in New York; Peter Marks, vice president of wine education for Constellation Brands; and Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, author of "The One Minute Wine Master: Discover 10 Wines You'll Like in 60 Seconds or Less" and a frequent guest on national television. All three hold the master of wine title.

The World of Wine Festival continues this week, culminating in a public grand tasting from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, at Bigham Knoll in Jacksonville. All medal-winning wines will be available to taste. The event also features a wide array of foods from local restaurants and shops, live music and a silent auction for wines, winemaker dinners, vacation getaways and more.

Half of the proceeds from the silent auction will be split between the Medford Food Project and the local 4-H Foundation.
