Bruce Nicholson, Chair, Oregon Wine Competition

“Our Judges remain a Hallmark in our competition. We actively  recruit Judges that are highly credentialed and have international experience. We typically see a Master  Sommelier and a highly rated Wine Writer and Educator at each table. Therefore it adds significant value to the metal.”

"We are scoring these at a very high standard. The results are what they are. The reds did excel at a higher value. Top marks, a real stand out is Syrah, I'm a big fan. What I find here is there is a savory spice character to the wines. There is an elegance, there is a weight, there is a lot of structure but it's balanced. That's something you don't find in a lot of places."
