2014 Seattle Wine & Food Experience Wine Awards Results Announced!

While the Seattle Wine & Food Experience (@SeattleWineFood) is still a few (very short) days away, the first annual Wine Awards for the event were announced today! Though not all wineries pouring at the event chose to enter their wines in the inaugural Seattle Wine and Food Experience wine competition, more than 60 wineries submitted 150+ wines for the awards in a variety of styles from red and white to sparkling and dessert. The wines were tasted and awarded medals by Great Northwest Wine’s (@GreatNWWine) tasting panel, led by longtime Northwest wine journalists Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman. The judges conducted the tasting under blind conditions. "The awards program was created to give wineries an opportunity to have their wines tasted by top wine professionals on the West Coast,” said Jamie Peha, president of Peha Promotions, TableTalk Northwest and producer of SWFE. "Because Seattle Wine and Food Experience is open to all wine regions it gives wineries an opportunity to be tasted on a broader scale.”
