Location and Deadlines for Wine Delivery


Please note that this year we have implemented some logistical changes to make the wine delivery process more efficient for all parties.

Registrations will be accepted on the website until Thursday March 19th at 11:59PM.

Wineries entering the Best of Varietal Awards will need to organize deliveries to the Container World Kelowna Depot within a five (5) day time frame. Deliveries will be received at the Container World Kelowna Depot within the timeframe stated below:

Monday March 16th at 9am - Friday March 20th at 5pm

Wineries will not be able to submit their wine entries to Container World any later than Friday March 20th at 5PM. It is imperative that all wineries follow the schedule for delivering to Container World, or your wines may not be accepted. If you are unable to deliver your wine entries within that timeframe, please make separate arrangements by emailing Jennalyn at [email protected].

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER:

  • A minimum of three (3) bottles of each wine entry must be submitted for judging.
  • Wine entries that have been registered at the website but not delivered will not receive refunds.
  • Wine entries that are delivered but not registered will not be judged and will not be returned.
  • Any wine entries that do not have corresponding Doc60 forms will not be judged.
  • If there is a discrepancy between wines registered and wines dropped off, wines may be substituted only if the number of entries and the number of received wines are the same. Additionally, if the technical information for each wine entry is not provided, the wines may not be judged.
