It’s the only wine competition for cold-hardy grape cultivars.

The ICCWC website offers a preview: “There will be 32 different competition categories, including Native Grape, French & American Hybrids, Sparkling, Specialty & Fortified, Non-Grape, and 100% Cold Hardy Grape wines.”

Winners will be announced at the state fair on August 26 at the Minnesota Grape Growers Association exhibit in the Ag-Hort-Bee building.
