OWFBF Winners

Best of Show at the Oregon Wine, Food & Brew Festival Wine Competition.

On Jan. 5, four Oregon wine judges evaluated 70 different wines submitted for the Oregon Wine, Food & Brew Festival Wine Competition. The competition took place at the Salem Red Lion Inn, under a blind-taste format, using the UC Davis 20-point scale.

“The judges were meticulous and extremely dutiful in their consideration of each and every entry,” said Jill Ingalls, co-owner of the festival. “I am amazed at their knowledge, expertise and dedication to this industry.”

The contest was open to all 36 wineries that poured in the 29th annual festival, which took place Jan. 14–15 at the Oregon State Fairgrounds’ Americraft Center in Salem.

Along with the wineries, the festival also featured Oregon restaurants and caterers, microbreweries, as well as local artists.  For more information about the festival, visit www.oregon
