JUDGING RESULTS

image44

Each year a professional judging panel is formed to judge the home wines entered for the event.  Mary Pisor, our current Chair of the Wine Judging Panel (from Pine Ridge Vineyards), puts together professional winemakers, barrel makers, and enologists from various locations throughout Napa Valley.  This is one of the most important part of the Home Winemakers Classic as it gives professional feedback on their wines.  


The judging panel does not automatically award a ribbon just because a wine has been entered.  Each wine must meet the requirements of a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc., place wine or no award is given.
