The 15th annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition was held at the Rochester Plaza, March 21-22, 2015 in Rochester, NY. Known as the world’s largest wine competition to support a charity, is open to all commercial wineries from all wine-producing countries.

Over 3,708 wines were entered from 940 wineries, 27 countries, 6 Canadian Provinces, and all 50 United States.

All proceeds from the competition and subsequent events benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and families all over the world, whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life-threatening challenges. Located in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes wine country, the Camp offers residential programs, year-round activities, and events for adults and children.
