We run a tightly structured, rigorous tasting process. We use the ‘double-blind’ method, which means samples are tasted in pre-poured numbered glasses to ensure our experts never see a bottle. Each drink is judged by a whole panel in sync, allowing for group discussions.
We want to ensure that if a wine is faulty or damaged we can serve a fresh sample to avoid any of your wines getting an unfair score. In addition, if your wine wins a gold medal it will be put forward for our trophy judging, where we will use a bottle in these judging sessions. Spare bottles are used for promotional activities throughout the year.
Please note: if you are sending cans, we will require six samples.
