Amateur Wine Competition

Eligibility: Must be 21 or older to enter the wine competition. All entries must be produced by entrant(s) outside of commercial establishment. Wines, entry registration and fees must be registered and paid online prior to entries being mailed or delivered. Entries and wines must be submitted and received by Friday, July 26. Only online entries will be accepted. Paper or mailed applications will not be accepted. Incomplete or inaccurate information will result in disqualification.

Entry Fees: $10 per entry to be paid online during registration.

Entry Requirements: An official entry shall consist of two bottles, completed online entry and the appropriate entry fee. Two bottles are requested in the case that one is corked or had closure problems, a second bottle allows judges the possibility of fairly judging the wine. Each bottle must be labeled with winemaker’s name, varietal(s) (if a blend, indicate % of each variety), vintage or year produced, residual sugar, time in oak, region (if known) and alcohol (if known). For fortified wines, please indicate type and flavor of spirits used. Bottles and shipping containers will not be returned.

Please designate style during online registration as one of the following:

  • D = Dry (0-1%, or ≤ 10 g/L sugar)
  • SS = Semi-Sweet (1.1% to 4.0%, or 11-40 g/L sugar)
  • SW = Sweet (>4%, or >40 g/L sugar)
  • Note: for any wine >4% sugar, enter it as a Dessert White or Dessert Red
  • Residual sugar and oak information is important, as it will directly influence the placement of your entry in the category
