Sid Patel CEO of London Wine Competition reviewed this year’s awards, ‘I am delighted with the level of quality which has gone up another 2 notches from last year. The high standard of judges has helped us achieve even more notable awards than in 2019.
London Wine Competition judges quality, value and packaging to assess the product entries in ways that consumers will judge the product. With 11 Masters of Wine, Master Sommelier, buyers from key retail and senior sommeliers from London’s fine dining scene, the experience and expertise applied to the judging has been of the best quality.
The awards also demonstrated the real scope of global production and competition with award winners being selected from a number of lesser-known wine-producing countries Uruguay, Russian Federation, Jordan, Georgia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine.
