The UT Wines of the South competition is back this year and for the first time, the average consumer will have the chance to be a judge.

Faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to participate in the event, which begins at 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, October 12, at the UT Conference Center. The discounted price is $49.

The competition has expanded to include a People’s Choice Award. After professional judges evaluate the wines, the average consumer will then have the opportunity to assess them as well.

The Wines of the South competition is an annual contest that features entries from dozens of wineries in the south. Professional out-of-state judges evaluate the wines through a blind tasting.

The competition is organized by Carol Costello, director of UT’s Beer and Wine Program and a professor in the Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management Program within the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
