After 2 years of consecutive success, the 3rd edition of the London Wine Competition brings the best deals for wine brands. This international competition, due to its unique approach to judging, has been recognized as a unique and ideal competition among all the other wine judging events from across the globe.

All global wine competitions have been organized in the same way for years, by wines being blind-tasted and judged. The London Wine Competition has taken a step ahead and brought a different approach to judging. Apart from quality, the London Wine Competition also judges all wines, based on their packaging and value for money. To be more precise, the London Wine Competition judges in the way a consumer would, when picking a wine.

Beverage Trade Network, the organizers of the London Wine Competition asked hundreds of trade buyers as to how they buy their wines. In the end, it all boiled down to three things: Quality, Value, and Packaging.

The average customer always looks at the price first. Then they look at the label and pick out the wines with designs and stories that appeal to them. So, these two things come before a producer even gets a chance to show how well their wine is.

Putting this into place, the London Wine Competition judges wines based on three main parameters:

Quality

We celebrate the wines that are both enjoyable and easy to drink, wines that are well-balanced where their acidity, tannins and alcohol levels all work seamlessly together.

Packaging

What a wine brand looks like is how every consumer chooses their wines. Up to 70% of consumers would choose a new wine just because it looks good. So, well-designed packaging is a must-to-consider factor.

Value

To be a good wine, it is not necessary to have a higher or cheaper price. What affects most is the value for money it holds.

The 2019 London Wine Competition saw wine entries from across the globe and winners from countries including the USA, France, Germany, Australia, South Africa, and many more. The bottles were judged by a leading panel of judges, who are involved in the direct trade and day-to-day buying of wines.

 

Kellermeister’s Wild Witch took home the ‘Wine of the Year’ award at the 2019 London Wine Competition. Along with that, the Barossa wine also won ‘Best in show by Country (Australia)’, ‘Best in show by Varietal (Shiraz)’, and ‘Best wine by Quality’. Know more...

“For Wild Witch Shiraz to be judged Wine of the Year at such a prestigious international event is a massive achievement for Kellermeister.”

“Such a strong showing on the international stage is great for our state, our beautiful Barossa region and for Kellermeister. We’re thrilled”.

said Mark Pearce, CEO of Kellermeister.

 

So, the medal-winning wines are the ones that,

  • Offer the best value for the price

  • Offer the best quality for their price

  • Stand out of the shelf against the competitors

  • Tell their story in the most relevant way

 

Enter your wines into the London Wine Competition before 28 February 2020.
