IWSC reveals 2023 Wine Producer Trophies shortlists

Wine news

Mon 18 Sep 2023

The IWSC is delighted to announce the shortlists for its coveted 2023 Wine Producer Trophies.
Each year, producers with the best medal performance in their wine category are shortlisted for our producer trophies.

All shortlisted producers are asked to complete a short questionnaire so our Judging Committee can gain a deeper understanding of the behind-the-scenes work going on at the wineries.
Based on the information from the questionnaire, as well as the medal results, the Judging Committee will select the winners of each category, who will be announced on Thursday 19 October at the IWSC’s 2023 Awards Celebration.

Each of the winners will also be put forward for the IWSC’s Outstanding Wine Producer Trophy, sponsored by Encirc.
