Calling All Winemakers!

August 2013-

The Topsfield Fair is excited to be hosting our annual Winemaking Competition at the 2013 Fair. Homemade Wine entries are being accepted now until Wednesday, August 7, 2013. Entries, along with registration forms, should be dropped off at the Topsfield Fair’s Administration Building (207 Boston St, Topsfield, MA). Entries will be awarded points based on the following categories: Appearance, Aroma and Bouquet, Taste, Aftertaste, and Overall.


In addition to the Amateur Wine Competition, exhibitors can enter the Wine Label Competition. Labels can be hand drawn or computer generated and will be judged as separate classes. Accepted entries will be judged at the conclusion of the Winemaking Contest and will be displayed at the Topsfield Fair on October 4th to October 14th, 2013.
