The Newport Seafood & Wine Festival Commercial Wine Competition entered its 27th year with 168 wines submitted for this year’s contest. The number of wines recorded reflects the quality of winemaking in the Northwest and is a testament to the value that winemakers place on this event every year.

Shilo Inn and Suites, this year’s commercial wine competition sponsor, hosted this year’s event, which took place Feb. 9 and 10. Five renowned wine experts spent two days navigating their way through wine flights, narrowing down their choices until Spangler Vineyards’ 2010 Grenache emerged as Best Of Show. A relatively high number of wines medaled this year, proving that Northwest wineries are continuing to gain recognition and respect as an entire region.
