IWSC + Bottlebooks
The IWSC is delighted to share news of a time saving solution. We have partnered with data platform Bottlebooks to offer wine entrants simplified and time saving entry to our awards.
As our awards broaden to incorporate the growing diversity of drinks available, entry into our awards had the potential to become progressively more complicated and time consuming.
But this will not be the case! The IWSC is delighted to share news of a time saving solution. We have partnered with data platform Bottlebooks to provide a one click solution for entry to our awards.
Bottlebooks was created to simplify the exchange of comprehensive drinks information in a standard format. Rather than duplicate the same information again and again to fulfil different requirements or requests, by uploading and hosting this information to Bottlebooks, it is available in a standard format to be exported directly to any producers, retailers, importers, events or awards bodies who require it.
Over 170,000 teams are already using Bottlebooks including retailers M&S and Waitrose, international events Prowein and London Wine Fair, importers Berkmann Wine Cellars, ABS and MMD and associations New Zealand Winegrowers, California Wine and WOSA. The IWSC is delighted to be the only awards body to be working exclusively with Bottlebooks.
If you are already actively using Bottlebooks, or have used it previously to export your wine data, you are now able to use the platform to enter our awards, saving you precious time in what we recognise can be a time-consuming entry process.

A. Head to the Bottlebooks website and click 'login'. If your business already has an account, you will be able to join it and get started. If it is the first time you have used Bottlebooks you will be taken through the set-up process which can be completed in a matter of minutes.
