Pennsylvania Wine Competition

The Pennsylvania Wine Competition is hosted by the Pennsylvania Winery Association (PWA) and allows entries from wineries located in Pennsylvania with wines that can be labeled as Pennsylvania wines according to the TTB regulations. The competition is open to all varieties of wines. The Best of Show is awarded the Keystone Cup. This competition is judged by an independent group of judges.

This competition got its start in the mid 70’s with the help of one of Presque Isle Wine Cellars owners, Doug Moorhead. The goal of forming this competition was to improve and promote Pennsylvania wines. This is a state wide competition for commercial wineries only.
