Winemakers' Choice Judging 



Due to the fact that the cultivars mentioned below do not have the volumes to warrant their own category, we ask that they are entered under the Other Red Varieties and Other White Varieties categories,

However it must be noted that each cultivar is judged separately and the judges are informed of what cultivar they are judging.
