The InterVin International Wine Awards is designed to recognize and celebrate the very best wines available to Canadian consumers. The goal is simple: help winemakers attain well-deserved recognition and celebrate outstanding achievements in winemaking.
Through InterVin’s international scope and diligent evaluation process, an entirely objective, blind tasting format has been developed that utilizes a team of qualified and respected judges. The panel features wine industry professionals with backgrounds in hospitality, media, education and winemaking.
Competing wines will be grouped by varietal or style ensuring that each is fairly evaluated. Judges will award gold, silver and honours medals in each category as well as determine the prestigious top awards for the overall best wines.
All wineries that submit five or more wines compete for Winery of the Year. The top five scores will be used to calculate your overall ranking. Top 15 finalists will be marketed extensively through VINES and our national multimedia campaign.
Allow your truly superior wines to stand out from the crowd and earn the accolades they deserve!
Judging takes place at the spectacular White Oaks Resort & Spa, August 8th to 10th, 2018.
Online entries close Monday, July 16.
