The Judging

Sid Patel, CEO of event organiser Beverage Trade Network, says, “A wine is more than just a drink, it is a whole experience. That is why the London Wine Competition is designed for Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and experienced buyers to evaluate wines the way wine drinkers do. Yes, they analyse the quality of the wines thoroughly; they are then asked to judge and award marks based on the value and packaging of the wine.”

Wines were judged on the basis of three primary criteria – quality, value and packaging – and then scored on a 100-point scale. Wines that scored 90+ points received Gold medals, those that scored 76 to 89 points received Silver medals, whilst Bronze medals went to spirits that score between 65 & 75.
