  1. Meh. Looks like more of a list of wines to avoid. The international competition was so sparse as to be unfindable in the lists. No recognizable quality vintners from California. E&J Gallo gets a double gold. Grapevine Convention Center says it all.

    It may have been much more helpful if they had a category for best cooking wine.
