The 15-person Judges Panel will include returning wine buyers such as Otto Han of New Seasons Market, and wine writers Michael Alberty, The Oregonian and Eric Degerman of Great Northwest Wine. New judges will include Timothy Nishimoto, Corporate Wine Buyer for Made in Oregon, Michelle Williams of Forbes Magazine, and Joe Roberts of 1 Wine Dude among other prestigious wine professionals.
27th Anniversary Wine Competition McMinnville, Oregon
Online Wine Competition Solution
We invite all wineries participating in McMinnville Wine & Food Classic’s 2020 Annual Event to submit your winery info and wines via our new online Wine Competition Solution, Enofile Online. We selected this resource to not only make it easier for participating wineries, but also to give our Wine Competition and your wines more online exposure. You can submit wines through January 3, 2020.
Exposure & PR for Your Wines
Competition wines will be served at the Wine Competition After Party, an additional fundraiser for St. James School, and another opportunity for consumer exposure. Your winery contact information will be supplied on our website. Unopened wines will become part of the Spring Wine Auction, another fundraiser for the school and more exposure for your winery.
Register Early to Ensure Inclusion
We suggest you complete registration and payment now, as the number of wines accepted for judging may be limited. You can ship the wines later in the year, but all wines must be received by January 6th, 2020.
