Also, the 2016 New World Wine Awards are calling for entries right now. This is an amazing opportunity for small producers that are normally not able to compete with the ‘big boys’ due to limited availability and distribution. You have until June 24th to submit your wines so better do it now. Good luck and we look forward to seeing what this year has to offer!
