People who make their own wine are justifiably proud of their work, whether they use fresh fruit or wine making kits to produce their homemade wines. Bottles are shared at dinner parties, given as gifts and usually that’s as far as it goes – unless this wine happens to be a prize winner, that is.
Hobby vintners looking for a little more recognition for their wines have a golden opportunity in the form of the 2010 WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition being sponsored by Elkhart’s Quality Wine and Ale Supply, which specializes in wine making supplies, beer brewing kits and other products for home brewers and vintners.
The contest is open to all amateur wine makers and includes separate categories for fifty different varietals, with prizes for varietals and best of show winners from Quality Wine and Ale Supply as well as from Winexpert, RJ Spagnols, Wine Maker Magazine and other sponsors. There’s a lot of chances to win; and even winemakers who don’t end up with prizes will gain something very valuable – feedback on their wines from the wine experts who make up the panel of judges for the competition.
As an additional incentive to their wine making customers, Quality Wine and Ale Supply is offering the chance to win additional gift certificates to those who enter the WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition using their own entry form available on their website. The deadline for entries to the 2010 event is March 15th, so wine making hobbyists are strongly encouraged to enter as soon as possible before it’s too late to be considered.
Unfortunately the deadline will have come and gone too quickly for anyone who has just picked up a wine making kit; but they have a year to refine their craft and create a wine which just may walk away with a best of show prize for 2011. While it will soon be too late to enter the 2010 competition, it’s never too early to plan for the future.
