California's State Fair Wine Competition is at it Again

For winemakers who think their wine a worthy competitor (or who just want to see how they compare), the California State Fair will accept entries into its 155-year-old Commercial Wine competition up until this Friday, May 7th.

The judging--open only to media-- will take place June 2-4, and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 7 at Sacramento's 2010 California's Grape & Gourmet event, which promises an epicurean time.

If you think your wine can earn the title, "Best of Region," "Best of California," "Best Red," "Best White," "Best of Value," or the "Golden State Winery of the Year Award," submit entry forms, fees, wine label(s), and wine to the Sacramento Expo center by the deadline.
