Tasting Awards Methodology
Nominations for this year’s Washington Wine Awards were solicited from a panel of Washington wine and food professionals. More than 100 wines receiving the most votes in the award categories qualified for a blind tasting, which took place on March 3, 2014. The tasting was conducted by a panel of 20 industry professionals and the wines were scored using a 10- point system. The wine with the most points won. Winners for Wine of the Year (red and white) were wines nominated in that category that received the highest scores at the tasting. The 9th Annual WA Wine Awards were produced by Yashar Shayan.
