Chili Cook-In Online Photo Contest


Out of stock

Even a global pandemic is not going to stop us from the annual celebration of chili and Michigan wine! This years event will be much different, but still promises to be a good time.

Because the judges can not taste chilis, we have evolved the 2021 event into a creative, online, plating contest. Here are the rules.

  1. All contestants must register on our website prior to January 31st.
  2. Sometime between now and January 31st, prepare you very best chili. If you need help, we have a custom-made chili kit you can add on to your registration for only $10. If you buy 12 or more bottles of wine (for pick-up or shipping) we will throw in the chili kit at no charge!
  3. Channel your inner Food Network star and plate your chili, complete with a bottle of Fenn Valley wine or can of hard cider in the background.
  4. Take a picture, or video, and post it on our Facebook page before January 31st.
  5. Our esteemed panel of judges will choose the top 3 plating presentations on February 1st. Scroll down for criteria the judges will be using to rate the submissions.
  6. All registered attendees, and our Facebook followers, will be invited to vote on the very best plating presentation from the top 3.
  7. The grand champion Chili Cook-in winner will be announced via Facebook on February 7th.

Prizes are as follows…

  • Grand Champion: 2 tickets to a Winemaker’s Dinner when the world returns to normal ($150 value)
  • Second Place: 2 tickets to a Summer Evening Cook-out ($80 value)
  • Third Place: Fenn Valley swag bag ($40 value)
