Wines from around the world poured into Purdue University's Memorial Union for the 19th annual Indy International Wine Competition, August 4-6, 2010.
As one of the largest wine competition in the US, the Indy International brought in 2,681 wines from 15 countries and 40 states.
Fifty-two judges traveled to West Lafayette from across North America to review approximately 120 wines a day based on appearance, aroma, taste and aftertaste. Judges receive the wines in numbered glasses, lessening the chance of recognizing a wine by its bottle and label art.
Wines can be awarded a gold, silver, bronze or no medal. The very best wines are awarded double gold, earning the right to compete for the best of show.
The Indy International Wine Competition is hosted by Purdue University and coordinated by the Indiana Wine Grape Council at Purdue University.
