London Wine Competition 2023 Submission Is Now Open

06/05/2021

Entries are now open for the 2023 London Wine Competition, an international wine competition devoted to wines that consumers want to drink. The competition rates wines by Quality, Value and Package.

After 5 years of consecutive success, the London Wine Competition, in its 6th year is set to continue its aim of setting a true benchmark for buyers and consumers looking to buy wines of the best quality, price, and packaging.

The 2022 London Wine Competition is an international wine competition organized by Beverage Trade Network and is set to happen on March 21 and March 22, 2023, in London. The London Wine Competition looks to recognise, reward and help promote wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. For any wine brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list - and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer-driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.

Quality, Value, Package and Design

The London Wine Competition awards medals according to quality, value for money, packaging and design. All 3 aspects are key to winning over the consumer whether on the shelf or at the dining table. Whilst looking great has always been a part of shop retail, it is now clear that restaurants require excellent packaging and design.

Sommeliers want guests to be impressed with their choice or suggestion of wine, and so it follows naturally that when they bring the bottle to the table that it represents every ounce the quality that they have recommended.
