California Wins Again!

Okay, let's say you don't like the results of a contest. Here's what you do, keep running the contest until you DO like the results.

For a third time, they ran a Judgement of Paris, for a third time, California one. What's a shame to me is that anyone thinks that France needs to win this. There are some amazing wines in both places and they both have characteristics that make them worth buying.

So, California is better. Does that mean that you have to stop selling your wines or making them because the world will think that you're just California wanna-be's and all your wines suck? Or does it mean that you're no longer relevant to the wine world and just about any upstart region in the world can have some judgement with you and you'll come in second place?

Well, it probably does, but stop it with the competitions already.

California in pole position yet again
