For the last 34 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.
New this year, the 2021 Commercial Wine Competition will be open to all bonded Pacific Northwest wineries. Any winery from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho are eligible to compete. Medal winners will be promoted on our Festival website and during the 2021 Newport Seafood & Wine Festival Virtual Experience.
Deadline to enter is February 3, 2021.
