Yeah, I am!! I did last year and was very pleased with the judges on this one (compared to Winemakers). I think I've narrowed it down to 12 entries for this year and my wife is entering 4.

I'm going to enter the Montepulciano. I just have to drop the bottles off at The Red Barn in Demotte, IN, and the owner will deliver them down to Purdue, so I don't have to worry about the wine getting heated up in transit.

This will be my first wine competition, and at $30 a pop, I'm not going to go hog wild.

Peace,
Bob

Believe that the competition concludes today. I hear 2pm.
Now is the hardest part. Waiting to hear the results.

Does anyone remember how long it took to get the results last year?

I wish I could give you a helpful answer. Hopefully, when you get the scores back, that will shed some light on why silver and not gold.

I can say that this is a transitional year for this competition. It's no longer affiliated with the Indiana State Fair. The "Indy" competition was held at Purdue Univiersity, in West Lafayette. It's also under new management.

Did you enter the last 3 years with the same vintage's, or did you enter different wines every time?

Peace,
Bob

I entered three times over the last 10 years or so. All with different vintages.
