Sunset International Wine Competition Taking a Hiatus

April 02, 2018

Sunset Magazine will not be hosting the Sunset International Wine Competition this year.

In an email to wine judges, marketing director Heather Bowden said: 

Sunset has gone through a lot of changes in the past few months; a private equity firm in Los Angeles bought Sunset last November, and we are in a phase of reimagining, rebuilding, and strategizing. At this time we’ve made the difficult decision to take a temporary pause on our International Wine Competition. Wine is still very much at the core of Sunset, we will continue to highlight it this year and possibly debut a consumer wine experience, and hope to revisit and reimagine a brand-new slate of wine programming next year.
