The 2005 Tempranillo wine from the IG Winery in Cedar City (formerly Iron Gate) earned medals at three recent competitions. The wine won gold at the American Wine Society annual wine competition in Sandusky, Ohio, and silver medals at the Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition in San Diego and the Grand Harvest Awards in Sonoma County, Calif. At the Grand Harvest Awards, IG’s 2009 Roussanne, the only Roussanne in the competition, earned gold.
The winery is at 102 N. 200 West in Cedar City, next to the Iron Gate Bed and Breakfast. It is a full-service boutique winery that blends, bottles and cellars 12 red and white wines. It also offers a full-service tasting room and indoor tasting bar where visitors can sample before they buy.
The winery recently changed its name after being notified by two other wineries with the same name, said owner Doug McCombs. "As a new winery, we were not interested in a long and expensive legal fight, so we agreed to use the name IG and let the other two wineries fight it out."
