Hello past Judges,
This year is the 50th annual Cellarmasters Home Winemaking Competition! Our event is going to be held, once again, at Camarillo Custom Crush winery, in Camarillo on the weekend of November 18 & 19, 2023.
As a past judge, you know how important being a judge is to what we do. Without you there is no competition! Cellarmasters has earned a reputation over the last 50 years of providing valuable feedback to all who enter their wines. This feedback has helped many home winemakers become better at their craft, and this in turn means we receive better wines to taste and evaluate.
Since you have been a judge for the competition in the past, we would love to see you there this year. Please let us know if you will be able to help make Cellarmasters 50th annual competition even more exciting than it has been in the past. If you can judge one of the days or both days, please save the date and let us know that we’ll see you there.
Cellarmasters will be holding two classes for judges and potential judges, or those who just want to learn a little more about wine, prior to the competition. On October 28th we will be conducting a sensory evaluation class, to learn more about what you’re detecting in the wine. This class is always a great refresher for judges prior to the competition.
The following Saturday, November 4th, there will be a class focused on how to judge. We will walk through the judging sheet and look at each section and how it applies to the overall scoring of the wine. Of course, this means we will have to taste some wine to really see how it all comes together! The classes last about 4 hours and include some wine and lunch. So, we hope to see you there!
Either way, please let us know if you’ll join us on November 18th and/or 19th!
