Toast of the Coast is a wine competition produced by the San Diego County Fair. Our competition recognizes and promotes wineries that are producing the finest quality wines. COVID-19 forced us to cancel the 2020 festival, but we are hopeful to have a festival featuring 2021 medal winning wines sometime in the late summer or fall depending on what the state will allow. Entering wineries will be invited to participate in The Toast of the Coast Wine Festival should it be allowed to occur. Open to any licensed national or international winery.

Open to any licensed winery national and international. Wines may be entered only by a representative of the winery.
