The California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition is now open and accepting entries from California wine producers. The competition provides an opportunity for California wine producers to showcase their best wines and have them evaluated by a panel of expert judges.
The competition is open to all commercial wineries in California, with categories for red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. The competition also includes categories for organic and biodynamic wines.
The deadline for entries is May 31, 2023, and wines must be received by June 7, 2023. Judging will take place on June 21-22, 2023, and results will be announced in July. Gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded in each category, and the top wines will be featured at the California State Fair in July.
