April 11th, 2015

For the past 7 years we have been proud to hold our annual Consumer Wine Awards in the Lodi area. We have worked very closely with the Lodi-Tokay Rotary, our major sponsor, and appreciate the support and enthusiasm of the entire Lodi community! Because of this great start and the growth of this competition, we are in a situation where a larger venue is needed to accommodate all of our wonderful consumer evaluators. We are currently in negotiations with sponsors in the Sacramento area. Check back often for information on submitting wines or participating as a Consumver evaluator.

What is the Consumer Wine Awards

This competition is different from any competition you have, or have not, ever entered.

Our Mission: Is to explore and introduce new ways to understand, embrace, engage, and cultivate wine and to create a more sustainable and healthy wine industry.

Our Goal: Is to provide wineries an opportunity to showcase their wines with other wines from around the world to independent, sophisticated wine consumers - selected based on criteria developed by Diversity Wine Awards to determine wine preferences on personal, psychological, and physiological traits - who will evaluate all wines and offer direct feedback and recommendations to other consumers who share similar affinities and passions.

What this is About: This is the sixth year for the Consumer Wine Awards, and the ninth year of a series of tasting events designed to refine and improve the consumer wine evaluation process and to expose wine enthusiasts to unique wines. Proceeds from the event are used by Rotary for local and international service projects. The Consumer Evaluators assessing the wines in each category will be the very consumers who are most inclined to buy and enjoy the wines of that category.

We are conducting several formal research projects that are at the core of both our methods for assessing the wine as well as creating innovative ways to provide consumers with an alternative means for confidently exploring and enjoying new wines and supplying wineries with this data collected to assist in the marketing and selling of their wine.
