California commercial wines are professionally judged in order to recognize the best wines produced in the state.

Dating back to 1854, the State Fair Commercial Wine Competition is America’s oldest wine judging. Only wines made with fruit grown and produced in the eleven growing regions across the state may be judged in the competition.
