International Wine Competition
January 27-28, 2018
Early Bird Entry Deadline: November 17, 2017
Final Entry Deadline: December 22, 2017
The 9th annual Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition will be staged in late January in San Diego, California, home of the "Challenge" series of wine & spirits competitions. Winemaker Challenge kicks off the series as the first major international wine competition of the year.
This year's lineup of judges includes the legendary Gary Eberle, the father of Paso Robles wine, Simi winemaker Susan Lueker, Nicole Hitchcock from J Vineyards, Maayan Koschitsky of Atelier Melka, among others.
Winemaker Challenge brings together many of the most talented winemakers in the profession to evaluate recently released young wines. Our teams of winemakers scrutinize every entry in a blind tasting that assures wines are judges on the merits rather than pedigree.
Once again Wine Review Online, with more than one million visitors a year, will post reviews of all Platinum award-winners in the weeks following the announcement of the official results.
Speaking for all of us at "Challenge" headquarters, I hope to see your wine listed in the awards come the end of January!
