Wisconsin wineries will go toe-to-toe in a competition Monday on the campus of UW-Madison.
The university's Department of Food Science is hosting an inaugural "Wine is Wisconsin" competition that will include 85 wines from 18 wineries throughout the state. The alcoholic beverages will be judged by eight food writers, restaurateurs, wine experts and retailers.
Honey and fruit wines, such as from cherries and cranberries, will accompany their traditional grape-made counterparts in the competition.
The wines are sourced from at least 75 percent Wisconsin products.
Judging kicks off at 8:30 a.m. at room B141 in Babcock Hall, 1605 Linden Drive, and final determinations will be made at 1 p.m.
There are over 100 wineries throughout the Badger State, according to the Wisconsin Winery Association.
