This event originated in 1982 by the Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department as an event to raise money for their volunteer efforts. In 2021, the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council takes over the event and provides the same exciting venue for home winemakers to show off their wines and for attendees to partake in them, enjoy snacks prepared by CIA, and to score prizes in the incredible silent auction. What better way to support the MVFSC and by extension, the Dry Creek-Lokoya Volunteer Fire Department?
Your donation is a very important contribution to supporting fire safe practices on Mt. Veeder and throughout Napa Valley. Over the years, our supporters have provided outstanding prizes, including wines, housewares, food items, restaurant meals, tastings and tours, baloon rides and other adventures. Include your donation and be among those who are doing their part.
Please come back next year for the 2021 Home Winemakers Classic
EVEN THOUGH OUR HOME WINEMAKERS CLASSIC HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS YEAR, PLEASE KEEP US IN MIND FOR THE 2021 EVENT!
Our sponsorship program is offered to help defer some of the costs of providing this amazing event and will mean more funding for our very important service of providing community fire safe education and services.
We have the following sponsorship opportunities:
1 of Grand Champion $1,500
1 of Best of Show $500
4 of Honorable Mention $250
Be amongst our stars who pour the homemade wines they've made. It's a great way for others to taste them and network with other home winemakers.
Each year a professional judging panel judges the home wines who enter Mary Pisor, is Chair of the Wine Judging Panel, which includes professional winemakers, barrel makers, and enologists from around Napa Valley. This is one of the most important parts of the Home Winemakers Classic, providing professional feedback on the wines.
Attendee Awards are also given. So, please join us and vote for your favorite white and red on August 1st!
