Dates Set for 7th Annual Bellingham Northwest Wine Judged Competition
The Whatcom Beer and Wine Foundation is pleased to announce that the dates have been set for their 7th Annual Judged Competition.
The 2022 event will take place over two weekends, July 1 and 2 and July 8 and 9, at North Bellingham Golf Course and 9Restaurant.
“We anticipate somewhere between 400 and 500 entries in this year’s competition,” said Foundation President Dan Radil. “That would make this the largest event in our seven year history.”
The competition is open to all wineries in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia. Medals and point scores will be released on July 14, 2022. Any wine winning a Gold or Double Gold medal will automatically qualify for the Great Northwest Wine Platinum Judging, normally held in October.
Applications will be accepted after April 1, and are available on the Foundation’s website.
All net proceeds from the event will be distributed by the Foundation to this year’s beneficiaries: Alzheimer’s Association – Team Joy, Blue Skies for Children, Our TreeHouse, and the WSU Enology and Viticulture Discretionary Fund.
