" Awards give trust – not everybody is familiar with Cognac, so it’s important that they can trust awards, especially when they are famous like IWSC. "

Francis Abécassis  /  ABK6, France  /  Brandy Producer 2019

" 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. "

David Hood  /  Spirit Cartel, UK  /  Spirits Distributor 2019

" 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. "

Abrie Beeslaar  /  Kanonkop, South Africa  /  Outstanding Wine Producer 2019

" Wine awards are super important. You’re judged at a similar level to other wines and to come out on top means that people trust what you’re doing. "

Tamara Roberts  /  Ridgeview Wine Estate, UK  /  IWSC President 2020
