" I like the breadth that IWSC offers. No longer are we just focusing on the major players, we’re looking at new regions where wine can be great. "

Madeline Puckette  /  Wine Folly, USA  /  Wine Communicator 2019

" IWSC is the pinnacle. We work hard to encourage brands to join our portfolio, so for them to see that we’ve won this award is very helpful. "

" IWSC is the most relevant wine award in the world. This is the only one we enter, to measure ourselves against our peers in the industry. "
