Submit Your Wine

Participate in the Pacific Rim Wine Competition

Held at the National Orange Show (NOS) Events Center in Southern California, this two-day blind tasting is held in April with awards of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Best of Class, Best of Show and Grand Champion.

Our judges include winemakers, educators, restaurateurs, sales professionals, and journalists. We attempt to balance our judging panels with a representative of each discipline while having a member from most wine growing regions as well.

All bonded wineries, importers, licensed negociants and custom crush growers that make their wines commercially are welcome to compete. All countries are included.

The invitational guidebooks are published in mid-January and the competition is held in April. The results are published within two days of the conclusion of the competition with the medals distributed within two weeks.
