In order to raise standards further we will be moving the tastings for the USA to California from 2010.
What does this mean?
Tastings for all WINES from the USA will be tasted at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at the end of March in exactly the same way they are tasted here in the UK. Judges will be recruited locally with some long-standing Chair judges in attendance to induct and guide them.
Top winning products will be shipped back by the IWSC to the UK for chemical analysis and trophy tastings.
What are the benefits?
• Lower shipping charges
• Local USA agent
• Higher profile for winners including local promotions
• Closer association with local judges and producers
We feel that this will benefit not only the producer but also the Competition with a closer association with local judges and producers.
