Announcing the 11th Annual Best of the Northwest Wine Awards

by | Nov 17, 2022

Sip Magazine is thrilled to announce the medalists of the 11th Annual  Best of the Northwest wine competition!

Put out across the Pacific Northwest, an open call for submissions brought in an amazing showing of 600+ wine submissions this year.

The submissions were sampled blind and judged by a panel of the Northwest’s top palates made up of sommeliers, wine buyers, producers and wine industry professionals. The top four medalists (platinum, double gold, gold and silver) and judges’ picks in each respective beverage category.  Judges’ picks are awarded in the larger categories recognizing wines that are the next highest ranking wines after the four medalists.  The complete wine results, including tasting notes for platinum winners, full list of judges’ picks and the winners from wine, beer, spirits, cider and seltzer will be released in the annual Collector’s Print Issue out early 2023.
