The Big E invites all Maine cheese, wine, and hard cider producers to enter the 2017 Gold Medal Cheese, Northeast Gold Wine, and Northeast Gold Cider & Perry Competitions. The entry deadline for the wine and cider competitions is May 15th, and the cheese competition entry deadline is August 4th. All who enter will be eligible to participate in sales and tastings in The Big E Wine and Cheese Barn at Mallary Garden.
All medal winners are displayed in the Wine and Cheese Barn during The Big E, exposing New England wines, ciders, and cheeses to a potential audience of over 1.8 million fairgoers.
This is a unique way to showcase some of the finest cheeses, wines, and ciders that Maine has to offer, as well as market and promote your farms and businesses on a national level.
