Competition – April 25-27, 2023
For its first three years, the Cascadia was known as the Great Northwest Wine Competition.
In 2016, we changed the name to differentiate it from our wine buyer-focused Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition each October at the historic Columbia Gorge Hotel.
All wines are tasted blind by category.
Please submit three bottles of each entry because this is a multi-day judging.
There are sub-categories to help vintners place their wines within the class that best suits them. Categories include canned wine as well as wine coolers and wine spritzers.
While the competition was open to wineries in North America, any wine entered must be produced using fruit from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, Idaho or Montana.
Per Entry Fee – $70.00
