General Information

Judging – February 8 – 9, 2022

We recognize the best wines in the West at the annual West Coast Wine Competition. This regional wine competition, established in 1982, celebrates the West and all it has to offer in the way of great wines and winemaking.

Vineyard & Winery Management is combining two of its oldest and most established brands into the International East Meets West Wine Challenge: to see exactly where East Meets West. Wines will simultaneously be judged in two divisions: International Eastern Wine Competition and the West Coast Wine Competition.

Traditional awards will be given in each division.

Best of Show winners will move on to compete in the East Meets West Taste Off to see which wine reigns overall. This affords your wine two chances to win!
