I'm sorry we used to have a mead class, but we could not find qualified judges for this class so we thought it best not to list one.

Not a problem. Did not want to send a bottle or two of mead only to find that there would be no judging. Will look to see if I can send something else.

@salcoco,

I have a couple of blends I may send, not sure of the category.
50/50 vinifera/elderberry - 8d?
70/30 vinifera/dark fruit - 10a?

Thanks in advance.

No kits or kit contents. All 100% fresh fruit, including the grapes, and both were blended from completely fermented wines.

go ahead with your original suggestions. We double check all entries for correct classification, so your entry will be reviewed and placed accordingly, if necessary. Thank you for your interest in our competition and good luck.

Mine are packed and ready to ship when we get home on the 3rd! This year is all my cheap wine kits with tweaks :) Very excited to see how they score - could be good or very "not good" :)

I'm going to wait to ship until next week. As with much of the country we've had some really cold temps here. Looking at the forecast for this week, lows are 1F, 8F, and 4F. Next week is at least somewhat better, starting Saturday.
