The rules of entry into the All Canadian Wine Championships are as follows:

  • As always, all wines must be made from 100% Canadian fruit. No imported grapes or juice. Any medals found to be awarded to imported product will be rescinded.
  • All wines must be available for purchase, even if only at the winery, from the opening of the 2018 summer tourist season, with enough on hand to reach Labour Day. Do not enter wines in short supply. No tank samples for next year’s release will be eligible.
  • Your winning wine must remain priced within the category it was awarded. (i.e. Cabernet Sauvignon under $30.00) If after September 1, 2018 there is wine still available, you may adjust the price at that time.

Competition results will be posted on this site by Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 11:59pm EDT. No calls will be taken while we are immersed in this important task.

That’s it! Good luck to all!
