As the IWSC opens for entries, it is delighted to announce a new collaboration with Steven Spurrier, one of the world’s most eminent wine professionals, and with the Académie du Vin Library.
Spurrier, who will be joining the IWSC as Honorary Chair in 2020, was recently described by Jancis Robinson MW as “the unsung hero of the British wine trade”. He has been deeply involved in wine for over 50 years – as a wine merchant, critic, author, winemaker and latterly co-founder of the Académie du Vin Library, a newly launched publishing house specialising in wine books. Spurrier's Bride Valley Rose Bella 2014 was awarded 95 points in IWSC 2019, and was described by experts as an "elegant, regal, and classic wine".

Christelle Guibert, CEO Fine Wine & Spirits, said “Our new structure was tried and tested in 2019 and is now in fighting form for 2020. The IWSC’s judges number the most experienced wine professionals on every continent and any wine producer can be 100% confident that their wine will be assessed by the best. You can enter the IWSC confident that your wine will be given the international exposure it deserves.”
