International Wine Challenge
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) is an annual wine competition. The International Wine Challenge (IWC) assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to variety, region and vintage. Every wine is assessed independently of its price. Great value for money awards are made after the wine has been judged for quality
The IWC now has over 12,000 entries. The results of the competition are published on the International Wine Challenge website in May, in Harpers Wine & Spirit magazine.
Wine Vision provides a unique environment that brings the leaders of the wine industry together to create a vision for a more profitable wine business. The event aims to inspire delegates with ideas for positioning their company for future growth and to be the catalyst for industry wide change.
Specialist Importers Trade Tasting (SITT)
SITT is designed specifically for wine buyers from the independent on and off trade, and for press visitors interested in ‘real' wines. Whether you are a writer or a buyer from a restaurant, hotel, retail or online environment, everything – wines, exhibitors, forums, generic participation – is created to give you the most useful day of tasting possible.
Baffling but never boring
For those who really ‘get Italy’, like plenty in the trade, that riotous mix of individual producers, regional styles and native grapes is a big part of what makes Italian wine so special. Italophiles would have it no other way – this is a land to get lost in and never escape from. But in high-tax Britain on the High Street that complexity is a bit of an issue.
Digesting Spain’s Wine evolution
Creating and then converting a buzz into solid, margin-delivering sales is surely the dream of every sales and marketing team, not to mention generic promotional body or, indeed, anyone involved in retailing a country’s wines.
