The CCWC has always been recognized for the professionalism and expertise that come from our panel of judges. We believe that these individuals enjoy the competition as much as the wineries who enter, and the coordinators and volunteers who help the event come together.

Judge Michael Cervin sheds some light on why he enjoys this competition so much.

“Having been a resident of the Central Coast for 15 years, and writing about it for national and international magazines for just as long, I take great pride in not only being one of the only local judges for the Central Coast Wine Competition, but in promoting the best the Central Coast offers in terms of wine, food, diversity and beauty.”
