Wine Competitions

Commercial Competition

For the last 35 years of the Festival's forty-four-year history, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Best-In-Show awards have been handed out to the most consistent achievers in a Commercial Wine Competition marked by one strong field after another.

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 country throughout the year.
