Napa, California, UNITED STATES

SONOMA, Calif., Jan. 25, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- 360 Global Wine Company (OTCBB:TSIX) and the Viansa Winery & Italian Marketplace announce today that its 2005 "Cento Per Cento" Estate Chardonnay was awarded a Double Gold Medal and chosen as "Best of Class" at the 2007 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

"Cento per Cento", which means "100%" in Italian, is 100% Carneros Chardonnay, 100% malolactic-fermented and aged in French Oak barrel. This wine has a creamy texture with flavors of baked apple, blanched almonds and creme brulee, and has a long persistent creamy finish. Our Cento per Cento Chardonnay is very well balanced and is a wonderful wine to serve with food.

The 2007 professional wine judging took place at the Cloverdale Citrus Fair during the week of January 8, 2007. 55 professional wine judges representing trade, education, media, retail, and restaurants throughout the United States evaluated 3,800 wines entered by 1,572 wineries from 20 states.

Wines were awarded as bronze, silver, gold, and double gold (unanimous gold by the judges). In addition, there were Best of Class awards given for each of the wine judging categories and the prestigious Sweepstake Awards for the top sparkling, white, red, and dessert wines.
