2020

The Tri-Valley Conservancy is pleased to announce the results of its annual wine competition, “Livermore Uncorked!”, which celebrates its 11th year in 2020.  Initial screening of the wines submitted occurred in March, prior to the pandemic, and was judged over three days by many of the region’s winemakers. Wineries were asked to submit a total of up to 6 wines in 12 categories

From the original 123 submissions, 69 went on to the final round, where they were judged blind by three wine writers, Jim Gordon of Wine Enthusiast, Laura Ness of Spirited and Wine Industry Advisor, and Fred Swan of NorCal Wines.

Here is the list of all 2020 winning wines
