The 2022 Newport Seafood & Wine Festival, presented by Chinook Winds Casino Resort, will take place Feb. 24-27, 2022 at the South Beach Marina.

Each year as part of the festival, an Amateur Wine Competition is held for wine enthusiasts from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. One month prior to the festival, a panel of local judges will gather for a blind tasting of up to 70 wines. Entries with the highest marks will be awarded gold, silver or bronze ribbons, and one winner will be named Best of Show. The winning wines will be displayed at the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival in February.

Entries for the 2022 competition are due by Jan. 30 at the following drop off locations: the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce, F.H. Steinbart in Portland, Davison Winery Supplies in McMinnville, Salem Brew Supply, Corvallis Brewing Supply or Home Fermenter Center in Eugene. Entry forms must accompany each wine entered.

More information on the 2022 Newport Seafood and Wine Festival Amateur Wine Competition, as well as entry forms, can be found at any of the drop off locations, online at, or by calling 541-265-8801.
