Cancelled: 2020 Jubilee and Winemaker of the Year Competitions

The Jubilee, SHW’s wine and label competitions and awards picnic was originally scheduled for June 13-14, 2020.  The Executive Board, at its May 6, 2020 meeting, unanimously decided to cancel this year’s SHW Jubilee competitions and awards picnic in response to state and local health recommendations involving COVID-19.

Furthermore, this year’s Winemaker of the Year competition has also been cancelled as two of the three qualifying contests, California State Fair Home Wine Competition and SHW’s Jubilee will not be held.

We’ll miss the flurry of excitement that these two important SHW competitions bring each year.  We look forward to seeing your best next year!
