About the Central Coast Wine Competition

The Central Coast Wine Competition is the largest wine evaluation event that recognizes wines produced exclusively from vinifera grown on the Central Coast regions of California. This event promotes the excellent quality and diversity of commercial wineries and grape growers while recognizing the fastest growing wine regions in California. The goals of the Central Coast Wine Competition are to provide information to wine consumers about the quality and style of wines that are currently being produced in the Central Coast area, help with the exposure of unknown or unrecognized wineries to the wine consumer and expand the general knowledge and awareness of accomplished wineries in the Central Coast regions, and to recognize the presence of the wine industry as an integral agricultural component of the California Central Coast communities. For a full list of 2012 winners, go to Central Coast Wine Competition
