Largest Competition of American Wines in the World Sees Highest Number of Entrants in 15 Years.
The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition has received the highest number of wine entries seen to date, surpassing over 6,300 wines entered in what is known as largest competition of American wines in the world. Submissions from across the country came pouring in, from independent winemakers and boutique wineries to large scale producers.
In 2014, the competition received 5,850 entries from over 25 states, which was previously the highest on record.
“I am ecstatic that we have passed the 6,000 entry mark,” said Bob Fraser, Executive Director of the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. “Hitting this milestone reinforces the exceptional quality and integrity that our competition holds industry wide. I’m so proud to be associated with the largest wine competition in America.”
These wines will be evaluated and rated during the judging portion of the competition, taking place at the Cloverdale Citrus Fair January 5th-9th. After they have been judged, many of the award winning wines will be available for the public to taste at the annual Public Tasting event, happening February 14, 2015 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.
