San Diego County Fair

Homemade Wine

Homemade Wine winnerThis competition is open to all amateur winemakers 21 years and older, who enter their homemade wine, have it judged by professionals, and receive judging notes. Each participant will be invited to the awards ceremony, which brings together hundreds of homemade-wine makers to celebrate and taste each other's creations.

Fair visitors can see these award-winning wines in The Wine Nook Exhibit, located in the Paul Ecke Jr. Garden Show Exhibit.
