This is the only wine competition which focuses solely on wines in the independent trade. Not only that, all of our judges are themselves independent wine merchants.
All wines are tasted blind and assessed for quality and value for money. Every year our list of winners includes wines from the upper price brackets as well as some that are surprisingly affordable. What they have in common is that the judges agree they offer outstanding quality for their price.
We are in the process of putting together this year’s panel of judges, continuing our policy of mixing up the group each year to ensure as many merchants as possible have the opportunity to take part.
The deadline for entries is March 22. If your wine deserves the attention of the independent trade, make sure it’s in the mix this year.
