PASO ROBLES — The California Mid-State Fair Home Winemaking Competition is now accepting entries. The competition will take place in May and feature wines made from both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.
The wines are separated into six categories: white, rose/blanc, red, dessert, wines made with fruit other than grapes and sparkling. The categories are then separated into classes by varietal.
The panel of local competition judges evaluate each entry according to appearance, aromatics and taste to determine an overall conclusion.
Chief Judge Mike Jones has put together an extraordinary group of judges for the annual competition. Judges are qualified based on their experience in the wine industry through multiple forms.
The registration period is now through Friday, April 19, and the cost is $7 per entry. Register today at http://cmsfw.fairmanager.com.
