The International Wine Challenge

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 33rd year. 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 IWC now has two separate tastings to accommodate the different production and sales schedules across the industry. Tranche 1 wines will be tasted in November and Tranche 2 wines will be tasted in April. The judging process remains the same with wines tasted in the context of style, country and region.
