(San Diego, CA) – Big Fogg Misting was recently honored with the 2009 Sterling Business of the Year Award from the Temecula Chamber of Commerce.

Chris Miehl, President of Big Fogg, was presented with the award at the 44th Annual Awards Gala in Pechanga Resort and Casino on February 20, 2010. Several other notable Temecula-based companies were also nominated for the award including Ponte Winery. Terry Pepin, Facilities Manager for the winery was pleased with the Big Fogg win. “If we were going to lose to anyone I am glad our loss was to Big Fogg,” Pepin said. “They are a great company, offering prompt customer service and great products. They deserve to take home this award.”

Past winners of the Temecula Chamber Business of the Year Award, including Bill Wilson, President of Wilson’s Creek Winery, agree with Pepin’s positive views of the misting company saying, “Without Big Fogg Misting Systems, Wilson Creek Winery would have to turn thousands of customers away. I highly recommend Big Fogg Misting Systems, as we would not be where we are today without them.”

Miehl accepted the award humbly.  "It’s an honor and a privilege to receive this recognition of achievement from the Temecula Chamber," said Miehl. “I’ve enjoyed being a member and am proud to have a company that is not only worthy of a nomination, but also worthy enough to take home the prize.”

Big Fogg, which is headquartered in Temecula, CA, yet possesses an established nationwide presence, has been a member of the Temecula Chamber of Commerce since 2003. The misting company has also been nominated three years in a row for Business of the Year due to its noteworthy community contributions, best business practices and continuing ingenuity within the misting and cooling industry
