La historia de IWSC

Now in its 50th year, the International Wine & Spirit Competition remains as relevant today as it did when wine chemist Anton Massel founded Club Oenologique in 1969. Massel had the idea of creating a wine and spirit competition which was based not just on organoleptic judgement but where all entries also had to undergo chemical analysis.

In 1978, the name was changed to the International Wine & Spirit Competition, and the disciplines were refined into what we know the competition to be today. Technical controls were tightened to ensure the highest quality standards were achieved and maintained to a consistent standard year after year.

The original aim of the IWSC was to award excellence in wines and spirits worldwide, and this aim remains the same today, encouraging recognition for quality products.

Entries are received from nearly 90 countries worldwide and each sample is judged according to its class and treated with the same care and consideration in the IWSC’s dedicated tasting premises.

The IWSC is proud to set the international benchmark for quality remaining unique in the crowded world of drinks competitions with dedicated tasting premises, a permanent onsite cellar and over 400 global experts judging products for seven months of the year.

Over 50 years working in the wine industry, the IWSC has refined its judging processes to reflect the changing industry landscape. Today, the competition not recognised excellence in wines and spirits, but also individuals, with awards such as Winemaker of the Year, Wine Communicator of the Year ad Wine Buying Team of the year.

The IWSC is part of The Conversion Group, a global investment company with businesses in Europe, North America and Asia. Staging over 200 events annually, in addition to wines and spirits, our businesses span the culinary, arts and creative sectors.
