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 12 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
Winning a medal at the International Wine Challenge is a significant achievement. The points system, based on a 100-point scale, has been used as a base at the International Wine Challenge for the past 25 years, to determine whether a medal will fall into the Gold medal (95-100), Silver medal (90- 94), Bronze medal (85-89) or Commended Award (80-84) points category.

Gold medal: 95 / 100 Points
“Lovely lifted red fruit, with sound Pommard structure, concentration of fruit and some nice smokiness. Excellent whole bunch / ripe stalk winemaking giving fine tannins on the finish.”
About 2019 International Wine Challenge
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 36th year. The International Wine Challenge was created in 1984. Judges taste standing up, over 10 days. In the first week, potential medal-winning wines are selected. These are then re-tasted and attributed an award based on a 100-point score system.
