A Central Coast winemaker is invited to judge the 20th annual San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

They have more than 65 professional wine judges representing media, trade, wine making, education, restaurant and hospitality industries.

"With over 37 years on the job, for those of you like us, the first words out of your mouth will be ‘What took them so long?' Congrats Jac," said Laurie Kelsey, general manger and co-owner of Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards.
