Why the IWSC?

" Wine awards are super important. You’re judged at a similar level to other wines and to come out on top means that people trust what you’re doing. "

Tamara Roberts  /  Ridgeview Wine Estate, UK  /  IWSC President 2020

" IWSC is the most relevant wine award in the world. This is the only one we enter, to measure ourselves against our peers in the industry. "

Abrie Beeslaar  /  Kanonkop, South Africa  /  Outstanding Wine Producer 2019

" The response to our award from gin drinkers in Finland and farther beyond was fantastic, and our sales over the years have grown over five-fold. "

Miika Lipiäinen  /  Kyrö Distillery, Finland  /  Gold and silver medals 2019

" IWSC not only heavily influences our buying decisions, but makes decisions easier. If you’ve tried a good wine, of course you’re going to buy it. "

Stefan Neumann MS  /  Dinner by Heston Blumenthal  /  Judge

" I like the breadth that IWSC offers. No longer are we just focusing on the major players, we’re looking at new regions where wine can be great. "
