A unique wine judging where wine consumers evaluate the entered wines. Our consumer participants receive instructional seminars on how to judge wine objectively. As an insurance that our consumer judges are giving fair, objective consideration to each wine, the panels are guided by an experienced advisor, who has evaluated wines at advanced levels.

Double Gold, Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be awarded to wines in a variety of American and Imported categories. The winery brand being awarded the most Gold Medals will be declared the Gold Medal Champion and winner of the CHAMPION GOLD MEDAL TROPHY. All wines are judged on their individual merit by price category, variety or proprietary style.

A list of winners will be submitted to national media publications; it will also be posted on the Tasters Guild website at and it will be published in the Tasters Guild Journal magazine. Medal winners will receive a handsome medallion for bottleneck display. Bottle stickers will be available for purchase by all medal winners for promotional purposes.

Entry fee is $50.00 per label. Only Two 750ml bottles, or Three bottles if less than 750ml, of each entry are required for the judging.
