winebottlesIf you’re a wine aficionado within driving distance of Indianapolis, head to the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1201 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, RIGHT NOW for the annual Indy International Wine Competition. It started today and runs through June 18, 2009, in the fairgrounds’ Blue Ribbon Pavilion.

The judging is open to the public at no charge! You can watch 80 wine judges from throughout the United States, Canada and Europe to taste, analyze and score the various wines. They haven’t announced how many entrants they have this year, but last year’s competition attracted over 3200 entries from 17 nations and nearly every state.

The Indy International is sponsored by the Indiana State Fair. Judging takes place from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. today and tomorrow, and from 10 a.m.- noon on Thursday. Admission to the judging is free, but parking in the fairgrounds’ lots is $5 per vehicle.

The Indy International Wine Competition is the largest scientifically organized and independent wine competition in the United States – the world’s largest wine market. The Indiana State Fair Wine Competition began in 1973 as an Indiana-only event. The competition began admitting entries from across the world in 1992 under Richard Vine, Purdue University Enology Professor Christian Butzke took over the leadership of the competition in 2006.
