A Wine Label division was also available. As might be expected the largest division was for red wines. Each division was divided into categories. The wine competition offered more than 100 categories for wines to be entered including wines by variety, and price, blends and price, fruit wine, port, cider and more. In addition awards were given for labels and packaging.

A wine was selected from each division to be a sweepstake wine.The 2015 Sweepstake Awards went to Gloria Ferrar, ZD Wines, Dr. Konstantin Frank in New York, Robert Hall Winery, Sonoma-Cutrer, Pezzi King, and Debonne Vineyards in Ohio.

Taking a look at the list of winners, it was great to see that award winning wineries were from several areas of the country. In addition to California wines, look for award winning wines from New York, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, Washington, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Idaho, Oregon, New Mexico, Missouri and Pennsylvania.

In addition, to the numerous wines to taste, food will be available as samples and also to purchase. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to sample or buy: artisan breads, hand made cheeses, sauces, desserts and more.
