The International Wine Challenge

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media has been running for over 30 years. The IWC is accepted as the world's finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.

The annual medal results provide an internationally recognised third party accreditation scheme for wine and Sake producers.

There is one annual tasting for the IWC which takes place in April each year. (tasting more than 15000 wines and Sakes from over 50 countries).  Associated activities include the IWC Merchant Awards, IWC Discovery Tasting, Canopy Newsletter, and IWC Wine & Sake announcement.
