world-of-wine-logoJACKSONVILLE, Ore. — More than 50 wineries and 200 wines will be represented during the 11th annual Southern Oregon World of Wine Festival on Aug. 21-24 at the Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville.

The event schedule includes the Meet & Greet Wineries Cocktail Party on Aug. 21, a sampling of wines from four styles of Riedel stemware on Aug. 22,  an expanded series of sensory clinics on Aug. 22-23, and the grand tasting Aug. 24 in Bigham Knoll’s big tent.

This year’s WOW competition will be judged Christy Canterbury, MW, one of seven female U.S. Masters of Wine and an author, speaker and wine judge based in Manhattan; Peter Marks, MW, vice president of wine education for Constellation Brands; and Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan MW, the fourth U.S. woman and one of only 30 people in the country to achieve MW status.

Last year, Abacela received gold medals at WOW for its 2009 Estate Malbec, 2009 Estate Port and 2011 Estate Grenache Rosé, a performance that helped it earn Wine Press Northwest’s 2013 Oregon Winery of the Year award.

The Southern Oregon American Viticultural Area was established by the federal government in 2004, and the Southern Oregon World of Wine Festival has been one of the Rogue Valley’s premier events for the past 11 years.
