It’s back! The annual WBD Wine Tasting Competition!

You’ve worked hard perfecting your wines here at Wines By Design and once again, you have a chance to show it off.

Coming soon: (Saturday, April 14 from 11a – 3p to be exact) we are holding our annual competitive tasting event.

The store will be closed for “normal” business, the day is devoted to the event!

Special bonus: All attendees will receive an Owners discount of 15% off all wine kits during the event. (Excludes the limited edition kits: Winexpert LE2017, Vineco Passport and RJS RQ wine kits.)

You are allowed to submit up to 3 bottles per person for the 3 entry categories: Red, White and Dessert/Fruit. Your wine will be moved into numbered bottles and you will be the judge in the blind tasting. The highest scored wines will be the winner in each category and the highest scoring of those will be named Best of Show. Best of Show wins a $100 gift certificate at WBD and the other two winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate to WBD.

To enter, turn in your bottles at the store before Friday, April 13 (contest closing time is 7p).

For the day of the event: there will be a $5 fee for those not contributing a bottle of their finest vino. (Contest entrants are free!)

Note: This is limited to wine made in the Wines By Design store (from our kits). This does not include wine made from fresh juice.

A quick recap (TL;DR):

  1. Drop off up to 3 bottles per person by Friday, April 13 at 7p.
  2. Join us for wine judging on April 14 beginning at 11a.
  3. See how your wines stack up against all the WBD competition!


We’ll provide: palate cleansing crackers, snacks, appetizers, munchies, and more!
