Wines of the South

Wines of the South is an annual regional wine competition designed to promote and celebrate the great tastes of Southern vintages. Wineries in fourteen southern states are invited to submit wines for the competition.

2013 marks the 12th year for the Wines of the South competition. Wines of the South Medals are recognized by consumers throughout the southern United States.

This year we will introduce the Wines of the South People’s Choice Award.  In addition to the professional judges, we will bring in 160 consumers (20 in 8 categories of wine) for a night of education, tasting, voting, and sharing results over wine and a great meal.  Apply now to be a judge.

Individuals chosen to judge these wines will be participating in a panel discussion about the process of judging wines and awarding medals, learning educational information about the types of wines they will be judging, evaluating at least 15 wines within their selected category, participation in the determination of the medals for each wine, a souvenir WOS People’s Choice glass, and a wonderful buffet furnished by the Knoxville downtown Hilton

Registration information to enter your wines or apply to be a People’s Choice Judge is located on this page.
