The Best of Wine Country Awards recognize the wine country community for its excellence in all things that make wine country so great — the creative, innovative, philanthropic, eco-friendly and unique components of wineries we know and love. All wine industry professionals within Northern California from Lake County to Carmel can nominate themselves and/or each other. The Best of Wine Country Awards steering committee will then narrow the eld to four nominees for each award. Each nominee and all members of the steering committee will then be provided a ballot to vote for the final winners.
