WineMaker Magazine 2021 International Amateur Wine Competition

Many of you are probably familiar with the Brew Your Own (BYO) magazine. Their sister magazine, WineMaker, is holding an international wine making competition that includes cider, perry and mead categories.

Information about the competition, including entry and shipping requirements, can be found here:

Categories include Category #38: Hard Cider or Perry, Category #42: Traditional Mead, Category #43: Fruit Mead, and Category #44: Herb and Spice Mead. I’m sure that many of our members also make wine, so here is an opportunity to compete with the best in those categories as well!

Since this is not a High Plains event, the club does pay for shipping. However, if you have any questions about entering the competition or shipping your entries, please let me know at
