What is the World Wine Championships?

The World Wine Championships is America's oldest annual international wine competition and is open to all commercially produced wines from around the world. It is a medal-based competition that awards medals based on the consumer-accepted 100-point scale. Wines are judged blind by the Beverage Testing Institute's trained staff joined by top wine professionals and buyers from retailers and restaurants using a proven, consistent, proprietary methodology.

The World Wine Championships distributes its monthly results to consumers and the trade through our publication Tastings.com, a free consumer website with tens of thousands of unique users a month on its searchable databases and via social media—a tremendous value and impact for precious marketing dollars.
