WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Since 1969, the IWSC has been one of the most respected wine competitions in the world. We run a tightly structured, rigorous tasting process covering all the main wine categories which are judged by the world's leading industry experts. This means that seeing an IWSC medal on a bottle of wine really means something to trade professionals and consumers. An IWSC medal is an industry-recognised seal of approval.
The IWSC accepts entries across a range of categories. For each category, we have put together a dedicated panel of world-class judges known for their expertise in this particular wine style.
At the IWSC, we believe that each wine format and package type deserves attention and recognition. Therefore, we are one of the few competitions accepting all wine formats, be it magnums, bag in box, cans and everything in between.
We are proud to be champions of sustainability in the drinks industry. Since the launch of our Sustainability Awards, we have been celebrating wine producers and brands working towards greener viticulture and carbon-neutral production cycles. Each year we award our Green Wine Initiative Trophy and Old Vine Trophy.
Entries for our 2024 Sustainability Awards are now open for all our Wine Awards entrants.
