Why the IWSC?

" 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 is a standard and a benchmark for quality, which is independent and utilises the best in the industry to judge the best in the industry. "

Jamie Matthewson  /  Waitrose, UK  /  Wine Supermarket 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
