Nevada Vines & Wines is proud to announce a new category of competition for the state’s growing ranks of commercial winemakers — and a new and improved awards show. Get your wine to us by March 18, and mark your calendar for the 2019 Nevada Vinny Awards on Thursday April 25 at 7 p.m. We encourage all the state’s winemakers to get in the game! Home and commercial winemakers will be judged separately. Home winemakers will not lose the prominence they’ve enjoyed as the heart and soul of the Nevada winmaking community. Home winemakers will receive feedback from the judges to help improve their approach to winemaking. Nevada commercial wines will be judged by wine professionals from the Nevada beverage and hospitality industries. Wine awards put the spotlight the wines and potentially aid in product placement.
