Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2023 PHV club wine competition Sunday, March 19th at Bristol Town Hall! There were a total of 94 entries. We reorganized the four categories this year to have more of an even amount of bottles in each category. As you can see with the results, it was more evenly divided. There were two cases registered in the Vinifera Grape and the Fruit/Berry category. Three cases were registered in the All Other Grape category and 10 bottles were registered in the Speciality, Sparkling, & Novelty category.
We had a great turn out for the event with 18 judges, 6 stewards, a handful of help washing glasses, and several individuals helping to set up and clean up. I appreciate those that brought a dish to pass with the potluck that kicked off the event this year. A big shout out to Sherry Parrish for gathering the raffle prizes which sent some lucky members home with wonderful prizes. It was nice to have the support of some members that came for the day to hang out and socialize. Overall, it was a great success and I could not have done it without all of your help. Thank you!!!
Congratulations to James King, winner of Best of Show! Also a big shout out to Ellen Weaver, Andrew Karleigh, and David Kolhwey for winning the Best of Class!
