Sustainability awards


The IWSC is more than a competition. It is a global wine and spirits community, focused on people and expertise.

The IWSC not only recognises excellence in the quality of liquid in the wines, spirits and other drinks entered into its awards, it also recognises the hard work producers put in to creating brands using methods which don't harm our natural world. Rewarding businesses with a holistic understanding of the impact they have on our environment and are actively making changes to their processes to ensure cleaner, greener production.
