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.

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.
