It states on your website that the competition is open to all commercial wineries. If does not seem to be for the amateur home winemaker

Hi -

The 2017 Great American Amateur Wine Competition should only state that it is for amateur wine makers. Did you go to the www.gramamateur.com website? I tested it and this should take you directly to the "Amateur" portion of the competition. There is an International Competition as well, that is separate. Let me know if you have any difficulty with this and I'd be glad to help you out in any way.

Thank you!
Vikki

I hope anyone who loves to make wine will enter this competition. Yes, there are many considering to enter. Since this is a new competition, it seems a bit harder to engage amateur wine makers. This competitions' goal is to judge great wines and help the wine maker with thoughtful and constructive input that will help the wine maker to enhance their already great wines!! Hope that you will enter!

I have volunteered for other wine competitions there and it is a great place to hold them... Where do you live now?
