This will be Newport, Oregon?s 35th Annual Seafood & Wine Commercial Wine Competition and 44th Festival. Along with the fun of the Festival comes the competition of the finest of wines gathered from the Pacific Northwest. Our Commercial Wine Competition is judged by a panel of three judges who will award Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Best-In-Show Medals.
Judging will take place on February 6th & 7th, 2021. All results will be sent to all participants and press one week before the 2021 Seafood &Wine Festival.
