" 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

" IWSC not only heavily influences our buying decisions, but makes decisions easier. If you’ve tried a good wine, of course you’re going to buy it. "

Stefan Neumann MS  /  Dinner by Heston Blumenthal  /  Judge

" This award will help my business a lot. I’m an export producer, so I sell more than one third in export markets, and IWSC is well-known around the world. "

Rudi Rabl  /  Weingut Rabl, Austria  /  White Wine 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 has been there for 50 years, so it’s the main recognition in the wine industry, and everyone knows it. Our award will help the business for sure. "

Gaelle Goossens  /  Champagne Veuve Clicquot, France  /  Sparkling Wine Producer 2019
