Now you, too, can become a wine judge!
Like to drink? Have we got a deal for you. For the second year in a row, organizers are looking for regular everyday folks to act as wine judges for the Consumer Wine Awards at Lodi. The competition will take place March 17 and 18. Entry forms must be turned in by Feb. 24.
As they explain:
The Consumer Wine Awards at Lodi recognizes and celebrates the fact that every person has unique physiological and sensory differences that profoundly affect wine and food preferences. The judges assessing each category of wine will be the very consumers who are most inclined to buy and enjoy the wines of that category.
Should be interesting. Tim Hanni, a well-respected Master of Wine, is helping to run the show.
