New Wine Category for 2017!The IWSC is proud to announce that we will now be tasting Organic & biodynamic wines separately, and have introduced a new category for these.
As they are becoming such an important part of the wine industry, we have decided to highlight the use of organic or biodynamic viticulture practices.
These products will have their own tasting, within their main country’s tasting, so that the country specific judges will be able to pick up on the differences in the wine style and quality these practices aim to highlight.
This will also include wine made from Organically Grown Grapes (USA) and other international variations.
The IWSC will also attend Millésime Bio 2017 in Marseille, where more than 900 organic wine producers will be exhibiting. If you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
