Royal Wine Competition Calls For Entries


TORONTO — As it prepares for its 93rd annual Fair this fall, the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is calling for entries in its 7th annual wine competition.

The event, run in co-operation with the Independent Wine Educators Guild, serves up an opportunity for Ontario wineries to earn recognition from a judging panel of some of the province’s most-respected experts.
“Canadian wineries have been getting a lot of great attention and acclaim on the international stage. This is an opportunity to recognize the finest Canadian wines at The Royal, where we have a long history of celebrating the very best in Canadian food and agriculture,” says CEO John Core.

The 2015 Royal Wine Competition will be managed by the Independent Wine Education Guild. John Switzer, wine writer, educator and chief judge at the Guild, will oversee the judging panel.

Wineries will be able to enter a range of classes for white, rosé, red and dessert wines. There will be a Best in Show winner selected for each colour section and an overall Best in Show prize.

Winning wines will be served at dining venues at The Royal and featured at various events during the Fair.
The deadline for wineries to enter the competition is July 30th and judging will take place on Sept. 13.  Entry forms and more information about the competition are available at The Royal’s website at
