New Mexico State Fair Wine Competition

Historically, wines have always been considered a farm product and among the oldest crops grown. New Mexico is the oldest wine growing region in the United States, first producing wine in the 1600’s. The New Mexico Wine Industry has grown to more than 50 wineries and is now producing high quality table and sparkling wines, successfully competing with California and imported wines. The State Fair Wine Competition includes both Commercial and NonCommercial wines. The results of the competition will be announced on the first day of the State Fair, September 10, 2015. Wines will be entered under Division 10, Agricultural Product Department of the New Mexico State Fair, in either the Commercial Section or the Non-Commercial Section.
