2013 Press Release

2013 marks the 20th anniversary of SIP! The McMinnville Wine & Food Classic, a benefit for the students of St. James School. Over those years, the event's annual wine competition has continued to increase in number, quality and scope. Wineries from around Oregon can now be counted among the entries.

A blind judging of 190 wines from 51 wineries by 12 judges, plus a consulting technical judge, resulted in the selection of xx wines for medals. They include Best of Show, 9 Gold, 19 Silver and 35 Bronze medals.

The 20th Anniversary McMinnville Wine & Food Classic will be held at the Evergreen Space Museum March 8-10, 2013. General admission is $17 per person, which includes live musical entertainment, guest chefs with wine pairings and access to more than 170 of the area's premier wine, food, art and information vendors.

PayPal Users print your EMAIL CONFIRMATION for your proof of purchase, as this will be your ticket into the event.  Admission into the event does not include tasting fees.  If you choose to park at the museum you will need $7 in cash.  No strollers are allowed at the event.  Event coordinators reserve the right to refuse service or refunds to anyone.
