The 2008 Gallo Gold Medal Awards

The Gallo Gold Medal Awards honor culinary craftsmanship among the country’s top artisanal food producers, recognizing excellence across a variety of food categories. The producers honored are a cross-section of the exciting artisan movement that is spreading across the United States, from baked goods to dairy products to charcuterie and fruits.

The winners were honored at the awards lunch at Park Avenue Spring in New York City on April 30, 2008. The winning products, chosen from a group of 300 entries, were brought together in a menu paired with Gallo Family Vineyards Wine.

Each of the seven 2008 winners received an all expense paid trip to New York City for the awards lunch, a $5,000 business development grant, national advertisement exposure in two leading culinary and trade magazines, an annual membership to the Chefs Collaborative (a not-for-profit organization fostering sustainable agriculture) and Gallo Family Vineyards Gold Medal Awards “seal of excellence” stickers to display on their products as a symbol of quality.
