Monticello Cup Wine Competition

Each year the Monticello Wine Trail holds a friendly competition among members to celebrate the best wines of the Monticello AVA. To be entered a wine must contain at least 85% fruit from the Monticello AVA and be produced by a member of the Monticello Wine Trail.

The 2018 competition will be coordinated by The Virginia Wine & Spirits Academy with results being announced in early May at the Monticello Cup Awards.
