GORAN BJEKOVIC ALEKSANDER RED WINE2010 Aleksander red Bordeaux blend wins a gold

Goran Bjekovic owns a tiny new winery just east of Paso Robles. He only became a wine lover 14 years ago, when he moved his family from Slovenia to Italy, and then to California where his love for wine turned into a passion, and where his stepson Sasha Vujacic played professional basketball. Now Goran has a gold medal for his wine to match Sasha’s L.A. Lakers gold Championship ring.

Goran’s Aleksander red wine blend earned a gold medal at the Dallas Morning News/TexSom wine competition, one of only five producers from the Paso Robles appellation to win a gold medal in this year’s competition. The winners were announced at the end of March.
