A win at the London Wine Competition is an endorsement from a judging panel that is made up of London’s top Masters of Wine, Sommeliers and wine buyers. For brands, it is a nod to how well the wine will be perceived in the market and a clear indication to trade to stock those wines. It will encourage trade to hand-sell the wines to it's end consumer with confidence as they were judged on the key merits of value, package, and quality. Winning the London Wine Competition award is the very first step. We provide you with extensive tools to make the most of your awards.
