A new, small, family-owned winery, Mystic Hills Vineyard, has been honored with awards in every competition it has entered. Now it has been awarded the top spot: Monterey Winery of the Year under the USA Individual Awards handed down by the New York International Wine Competition.
Vintner Joel Cox, a Santa Clarita Valley resident, is no stranger to being honored with awards. Enshrined on Newhall’s Walk of Western Stars, he is an Oscar-winning film editor. Some of Mystic Hills Vineyard wines are named to honor his decades-long career as Clint Eastwood’s editor.
“We continue to be blessed by the judges and our supporters,” said vintner and co-owner Judy Cox. “Our wine club membership is growing at the same pace along with these wonderful accolades.”
