Retrospective of Northwest Wines Competition – Results

Every year Ray’s Boathouse hosts a northwest wine competition.  It’s a pretty amazing event with local judges blind tasting hundreds of wines that have been submitted for the event.  This year they tasted 265 wines!  Wines have to have been released the previous year and must come from Washington, Oregon, Idaho or British Columbia.
The event actually took place in late January but while I was poking around on their site a few days ago, I came across the list of the top five wines in each category.  If you are interested, you can also request a list of all wines entered by contacting
