Wine Competition & UnWined Event

Each year, the wineries participating in the Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood and Wine Festival have the opportunity to enter their wines in the festival’s wine competition.

Prior to the festival, a panel of four or five judges samples and scores each wine during a blind tasting. The top-scoring red wines and top-scoring white wines are then tasted again by the judges. The winning red and white wines are awarded the titles of “Best of Show.” Additional top scoring wines are awarded gold, silver and bronze medals.

At UnWined, a small event directly following the blind tasting competition, members of the public are allowed to sample the wines and vote for the “People’s Choice Award.”

Check out the winning wines below and stop by the wineries’ booths at the festival to try them for yourself!
