The Los Angeles International Wine Competition officially began this morning at our Sheraton Fairplex Hotel and Conference Center.
Since its inception, the competition has maintained the highest standards of integrity and professionalism, earning USA Today’s recognition as one of the Top 5 wine competitions in the United States. Due to the competition’s popularity, this year over 3,000 wines from around the globe will be sniffed, swirled and tasted by a panel of approximately 85 international judges.
Prize-winning entries will not only be on display and available for tasting at Cheers – L.A.’s Wine, Spirits, Beer & Food Festival, but also at the LA County Fair. Fair warning: be prepared to have a first-class experience while at our grounds!
