Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition

Idaho wine country is a diverse growing region.

Great Northwest Wine conducts a one-of-a-kind wine competition each October. It’s called The Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition, and the 2018 judging will be Oct. 3-4 at the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, Ore.

Here’s how it works:

  • We invite influential wine professionals to join us in this competition.
  • Each of them has nominated up to 100 Pacific Northwest wines to be judged.
  • Each of them will then judge the wines as part of our blind competition.

Here are the nominating judges:

Ken Robertson, columnist for Wine Press Northwest magazine, and April Reddout, guest services manager at Col Solare Winery, serve as chief judges for the Great Northwest Invitational.

Gold medals will be posted on Twitter as they are awarded and emailed to the wineries. Full results will be posted upon the conclusion of the competition.
