2022 Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge Entry Deadline Approaching 


Final entry deadline is March 28.  

25 March — On April 5-6, 2021, a collection of esteemed wine professionals will gather in Santa Rosa, Calif.,  to evaluate entries in the 2022 Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge. Competition  managers are now accepting entries for NCWC, considered among the most prestigious wine  challenges in the United States. Final entry deadline is Monday, March 28. 

This regional competition rates wines exclusively produced and bottled in Northern California’s  premier winegrowing region. Eligible wines must be made from fruit sourced in the North Coast  AVAs of Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, Marin and parts of Solano counties. This includes any  bottled wine labeled with these AVAs as their main source of grapes and whose winery is in California. NCWC only promotes the highest awarded-wines (golds and above), keeping your win  exceptional and exclusive. Golds are converted into a point score above 90 and all 90+ point  wines will get a marketable positive comment from the judging panel. Winning gold medals can  help boost sales and brand awareness for producers of all sizes, but small wineries can truly  benefit from a gold medal in this contest.  

The best wines draw the best professional wine judges, many of whom are seasoned retailers,  distributors, restaurateurs and influential wine writers, who promote the wines they enjoy and  can help give your winning wine increased exposure. 

Public announcement of all awards is made in print by The Press Democrat newspaper, the  North Bay Area’s primary source for news and information, as well as online, by virtual  newsletters, and through social media outlets. The event will live stream April 6, beginning at  11 a.m., to announce Best of Class and Best of the Best winners. 

Gold medal winners are invited to pour and have their wines enjoyed at the North Coast Wine  & Food Festival, annually organized and hosted by The Press Democrat. This is a fun-filled day  enjoyed by wine enthusiasts from near and far, who look forward to tasting the Best of the Best  wines Northern California has to offer. The event this year will take place June 18 at the Luther  Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa.
