Wine, spirits, knowledge, community. Since 1969.
The IWSC is more than a competition. It is a global wine and spirits community, focused on people and expertise. Our mission is to champion the best wines from around the world by taking a personal approach to our partners’ needs. We offer comprehensive business support via our network of world-class experts and aim to bring this global community together to share insights and help each other grow.
We don’t just champion award winners. We seek out undiscovered talent and help partners – large and small – reach ambitious targets and achieve their goals.
An opportunity to put your wine in front of some of the world’s most eminent buyers and key decision makers, including the IWSC Wine Judging Committee, Buyers, Master Sommeliers and Masters of Wine.
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.

IWSC is a standard and a benchmark for quality, which is independent and utilises the best in the industry to judge the best in the industry.

In a competition where the bar is high – the IWSC wine judging process is fair but demanding so achieving a medal is meaningful.
