Held at the National Orange Show Events Center in Southern California, this annual competition has been setting standards for judging of fine wines since 1985. The Competition is a two-day event held in April where we collect thirty wine professional who conduct a blind evaluation of about two thousand wines. Results are e-mailed to participating wineries shortly after the judging concludes and result books are then printed and distributed.
Awards offered include: Grand Champion, Best Sparkling Wine, Best Red Wine, Best Rose Wine, Best White Wine, and Best Dessert Wine. A Best of Class is awarded to the specific wine classes, also awarded are Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. The Label Competition results in Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards in categories of Most Unique Label, Best Label Series, Best Individual Label and Special Recognition for that unique label that stands out.
While our Competition concludes in April, we continue with the joy of wine education throughout the year. We pour our Gold Medal and Best of Class wines at the five-day NOS Festival in May every year and then wrap up our education with a Wine & Food Under the Stars fundraiser event in October.
We encourage you to enter your wines and contact our Director Yolanda Daly if you have any questions.
