Winners by a nose, the 'Grand National' medallists that are all... thirst past the post!

Olly Smith

Olly Smith in the Mail on Sunday reckons the IWSC is one of the most exciting wine competititions around: “Wine awards are looking for more tangible ways to engage with wine consumers. Adam Lechmere, the general manager at the International Wine and Spirit Competition tells me: ‘As we move towards our 50th anniversary in 2019, we are positioning ourselves as the premium wine competition with a range of exciting new projects in the pipeline – not least a new consumer club, the Club Oenologique, which will give wine and spirits lovers access to some of the thousands of wonderful drinks we taste every year.’ So while a gong goes some way to celebrate a wine’s pedigree, potentially more exciting is the contest to access these wines. The race is on to win the backing of wine fans.”
