Bordertown Rocked the Pacific Rim Wine Competition!

Great Success for Bordertown at the Pacific Rim Wine Competition! Check out our awards!


The Pacific Rim International Wine Competition was founded in 1985 at the National Orange Show Fairgrounds in Southern California.

Founding members included wine lovers, educators and vintners. Their desire was to provide a fair and unbiased evaluation of wines in order to help the wineries with marketing while providing the consumer with guidelines to assist them in their selections.

This year’s Competition had 1,000 entries from about 200 wineries representing most wine regions of the United States, Canada, Australia, Argentina, Chile, France, Germany, Italy and as far away as the Carpathian Region of Ukraine.

“When judging fine wines, the caliber of the competition matters, and we simply have the best of the best here at the Pacific Rim.
Our competition continues to gain recognition as a premiere wine event in Southern California, giving producers across the globe a unique opportunity to stand out among their peers.”

Coke Roth, Chief Judge.
