SHENANDOAH CUP CELEBRATION

The Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail is excited to host the Shenandoah Cup Gala each year for announcing the award winning wines from the Shenandoah Cup wine competition. Join us to find out who will be awarded the coveted Shenandoah Cup, taste the award-winning wines, meet the owners/winemakers and nosh on heavy hors d’oeuvres.
Wine competitions are held to obtain valid comparisons of wines by trained experts to draw attention to a specific winemaking region. Following after other Virginia wine regions, the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail decided to create their own to gain recognition for their top notch wines. The first competition was first held in 2019. The goal is to draw more attention to the Shenandoah Valley AVA highlighting the superior growing conditions for wine grapes and the resulting wines that are being made. Wine submitted for judging must be at least 85% Shenandoah Valley AVA wines and produced by one of our members.
