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
In a competition where the bar is high – the IWSC wine judging process is fair but demanding so achieving a medal is meaningful.
Rebecca Palmer / Corney & Barrow / Judge
