ANNOUNCING THE 2018 GREAT AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION!

YOU SPOKE – WE LISTENED!

One of the largest International wine competitions in all the Americas!  This is our teams’ 17th year of managing major international wine competitions,
something we put our heart and soul in every year! 

After this year's competition, we received a lot of positive feedback from wineries and great suggestions on how to make the competition even better.
The two suggestions wineries voiced the most were:

MOVE THE COMPETITION DATE OUT OF MARCH

March is bottling time for many wineries and winter weather can cause shipping delays and freezing.

~ and ~  

ANNOUNCE COMPETITION DETAILS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER,
ALLOWING WINERIES TO GET THE COMPETITION ONTO THE CALENDAR AND INTO THE BUDGET
 

So, we moved the Competition 6 weeks out – right to the middle of Spring – and we are letting you know now!
