Silver Coast Winery Annual Wine Makerís Competition

February 10, 2011 - Ocean Isle Beach, NC - Attention Home Wine Makers!! Wines are being accepted now for Silver Coast Wineryís annual Amateur Wine Makerís Competition.

Home wine makers can submit as many wines as they like in the competition. There are 3 major categories: White Grape, Red Grape and Specialty. These are broken down into 3 lesser categories each. For example the White Grape Category consists of a Vinifera class, a Hybrid Class and a Native Class. Fruit wines are entered into the Specialty Category.

The wines are judged by the panel of judges headed by Silver Coast Wine Maker, Dana Keeler. They blind taste the wines and write down their comments and tips on how the wine could have been made better. The wines have gotten better year after year as the winemakers gain the experience and knowledge from these competitions.
