Fifty-nine professional wine judges from across the country, selected from a myriad of fields including trade, education, media, retail and hospitality, traveled to the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds in Sonoma County, California, earlier this month to judge the 6,417 entries from 28 states.

Right entries were honored with the Sweepstake Award in the categories of Sparkling, White, Pink, Red, and Dessert/Specialty wines. In its fifth year, a special category included a label contest that is independent of the wine competition.

Also recognized for extraordinary quality was an extensive list of American award-winning wines honored with the Best of Class Awards.

Many of the award winning wines will be available to taste at the Public Tasting, to be held February 14, 2015, at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, California. Tickets are available online.
