Judging 'in situ'

Judging 'in situ'

Each year, the IWSC takes its experts to wine regions around the world, collaborating with local experts to judge wines 'in situ'.

By creating this opportunity, producers from selected regions are able to benefit from the expertise and influence of the IWSC, without having to transport wines to the UK.

Each year, new locations will be selected and these regions will vary from year to year. Please review this page before entering your wines into our awards, as new regions may be announced at short notice.

SOUTH AFRICA

"This trip has increased my understanding and knowledge of South African wine. This immersion in the wines of the country, through producer and vineyard visits, deepens all of our understanding in a way that tasting and judging blind in a room in London can never achieve. I think it encourages us to judge each wine as an individual and think about it in its context."
