Wine Competition 2018



The GRAPEVINE Magazine is proud to bring you this year’s Best of the Midwest Wine Competition 2018. This event is to further explore the wine making styles and techniques using Cold Hardy grape cultivars and to honor the best of the Midwest.

We invite all Midwest wineries (12 states!) to submit their wines to our highly experienced judging panel. Each winery may enter as many different wines as they like in each of the following categories:


Red Grape

White Grape


Non-Grape Wines


An Awards Ceremony will take place from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the Gold Room of The Blackhawk Hotel (connected to the RiverCenter).  The awards are presented prior to the Public Wine Festival on Friday June 22 to those wineries who are providing samples of their wine can display their awards for the public.
