FOUNTAIN VALLEY — The Log’s Name the Catalina Wine Contest received dozens of creative entries during the past few weeks, but only two submissions were selected to receive a pair of tickets to the Catalina Island Women’s Forum Wine Festival at Avalon’s South Beach on Sept. 15.
Avalon 33 (Degrees) and Island Unwhine were selected as the contest’s winning entries. A. Peter Blake (Avalon 33) and Denise Hall (Island Unwhine) will both receive a pair of tickets to the upcoming wine festival.
Entries were submitted via email and snail mail through Aug. 17. The editorial team of The Log then reviewed and deliberated the entries, ultimately selecting the two winners. Submissions had to be creative, wine-themed and feature an element of Catalina Island within the name. We also tried to factor in what would resonate with wine lovers, Catalina regulars and the general public.
The competition was strong and selecting the two best submissions was not an easy task. Here are a few honorable mentions:
- Buffalo Juice
- Lean a Cat Wine Isthmus Better (anagram of Catalina; “Isthmus” as a play on “is much”)
- Merlovers Cove
- Island Vine
- Bissonon Blanc
- Island Girl
- Cow Pie – Drink It, Don’t Step In It
- Old Ben Red
- Pinot Cove
- Pimu Noir
- Treasure of the Island
- Mists of Avalon
- Glass Bottom Bikini Wine
- Wrigleynet Souvignon
- Emerald Bay.
Thank you to everyone who submitted entries! We look forward to potentially offering another giveaway in the future!
