Thank you for your interest in the Sutter Home Build A Better Burger® Recipe Contest.  The entry period is now closed.

Our judges are currently reviewing all of the delicious burger recipes.  This year, we received an impressive lineup of strikingly delicious classics and completely new burger change-ups; all perfectly paired with a glass of Sutter Home wine.

Check back soon to find out which burgers will go head-to-head at the semi-final cook-off events and who will be crowned the $25,000 champion.


All burger recipes will be reviewed by a panel of experts to select the top four in each region.  These Semi-Finalists will be invited to participate in a series of live cook-off tailgate events across the country that will culminate at the National Finals hosted at Sutter Home Winery in beautiful Napa Valley, California.

Burgers will be scored on Taste, Creativity, Ease of Preparation and Wine Pairing to determine who built the best burger.  The Grand-Prize Winner will take home a $25,000 cash prize!
