Dearest Vintners and Winemakers,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.  These are unprecedented times- and we pray you are all doing OK in this wildly weird new world of Covid-19.  

We do know though, that one day we will all be able to be together again, to eat dinner out, celebrate with family, visit with friends…share a bottle of wine or two or three or four… and get back to what will be a new normal.

In the meantime, we are planning for normalcy again and hope you will participate with us.  Below is new info and the invite to THE Rosé Competition.

Take care and be safe.

American Fine Wine Competition



Temporarily Postponed until Restrictions end 


Wine entries ARE being Accepted NOW! 

Ft. LAUDERDALE, FL. (April 5, 2020) – Due to recent restrictions in the State of Florida which has banned gathering until May 17th  at the earliest, THE Rosé Competition judging has been postponed.  However, THE Rosé Competition 2020 is still, definitely ON, but the date for the Competition has been pushed back until restrictions are lifted.  The Competition (and Robovault, our storage facility) is still accepting entries and in fact, wineries who bottle later this spring can still enter until May 31st.  All wines are kept safe, still and cold, so no need to worry.  The date for the competition will be announced as soon as possible.

Again, THE Rosé Competition 2020 continues to accept entries and has not been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.  All international and domestic Rosé wines are invited to participate. This includes still, sparkling, and sweet wines.  Please consider submitting your wines. 

Our esteemed judges include a balance of Sommeliers, chefs, wine writers, retailers and educators.  
The fee is $65.00 per wine entered. Registered wines will be accepted now through May 31st, 2020.
