Dear Vintners and Winemakers,
We understand the challenging times we’re all facing and know that one day we will all be able to be together again, to eat dinner out, celebrate with family, visit with friends…share a bottle of wine or two…and get back to what will likely be the “new normal.”
In the meantime, we are very excited to announce we are able to host our 35th Annual Commercial Wine Competition and have opened it up to ALL wineries in Oregon! This early-in-the-year look at Northwest wines offers clear evidence of which wineries are on track and who to watch at other festival showcases around the state throughout the year.
In the past, wineries had to have a booth at the Festival to participate in the longest running wine competition in Oregon. This year, however, that’s not the case and any winery can participate. This is a great opportunity to get your name out there and have your wines tasted, judged by three esteemed judges, and hopefully win a medal (maybe even Best in Show).
The fee to submit your wine is $40 per varietal entry and we ask that you send us 3 bottles of each varietal.
The judging will take place February 6 – 7, 2021. The deadline for entries is February 3, 2021. We will announce the medal winners the week following the competition and will broadcast a fun and special announcement of all the medal winners during our Virtual Seafood & Wine Experience on Saturday, February 27th from 7 pm – 9 pm.
