This year you’re considering enrolling your wines in a competition, let us show you why winning at the London Wine Competition matters for a wine brand.

This year, as you discuss the marketing strategy for your wine brands, and you’re considering enrolling your wines in a competition, let us show you why winning at the London Wine Competition matters for a wine brand. The London Wine Competition over the last 6 years has built itself into a prominent name in the UK based on the meticulous levels of quality the competition abides by. 

1) Working with judges with current commercial buying responsibility. 

2) Working with some of the UK’s top trade buyers. 

3) The threefold criteria of quality, value, and packaging. 

Due to this commitment to quality, UK’s trade buyers peruse the winning list of the London Competitions when considering products to add to their shelves and portfolios. That is why it matters that you have your brand’s name on the coveted list of London Competition winners. 

We know you’ve worked hard to create the finest wine, with a label that tells your story. You are trying to translate that story and build a successful business with your brand and heartfelt work. Give London Competitions a chance to take that story a step further and render it to the trade. A medal from the London Competitions will speak volumes about the results of your endeavours and expertise.

Rather than being lost amongst the thousands of brands entering the market every year, you get a chance for your brand’s name to be in the eyes and minds of trade buyers and consumers. It takes brands years of hard work to slowly work their way up and get a consistent stream of orders. You get a leg up when introducing your brand to retailers and distributors with a mark of excellence won from the London Competitions.
