The Central Coast Home Winemaking Competition hosted annually by the California Mid-State Fair is now accepting entries. The competition will take place in May and feature wines made from San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Monterey counties.

The wines are separated into six categories: white, rose/blanc, red, dessert, wines made with fruit other than grapes and sparkling. The categories are then separated into classes by varietal. The panel of local competition judges evaluate each entry according to appearance, aromatics and taste to determine an overall conclusion.
