Welcome to The Best of New England Wine Competition. We believe that the best of New England wines and related beverages dovetail ideally with the locavore movement, and can and should be supported by the fine wine trade as appropriate to serve with fine local cuisine.
This competition’s benefits:
Publicity: The results of the Best of New England Wine Competition were published in the New England Wine Gazette, Spring 2017, The Cork Report, 2017/08, Richard Leahy’s Wine Report and an hour-long presentation on the competition and top medalists in the annual American Wine Society conference, 11/17. This and additional exposure is planned for results of this year’s competition.
In addition to these benefits, The Best of New England Wine Competition aims to remove the tendency of high alcohol, low acid, highly oaked wines from warm regions to dominate competitions by removing that bias with a level playing field for New England entries that share the bright fresh fruit flavors and crisp acidity of the region that are also sought after by connoisseurs.
