The International Wine & Spirit Competition is taking a panel of international experts to Margaret River to judge local wines ‘in situ’ in August.

The judging is in partnership with the Margaret River Wine Association.

IWSC CEO Christelle Guibert says, “We are thrilled to be taking our international awards to Australia this year.

“We have seen the success our immersive judging has had in other countries including Georgia, Turkey and South Africa, and are sure to see the same triumph in Margaret River in Australia.

“Both the IWSC and Margaret River’s wines’ history date back over 50 years, and we look forward to joining forces and sharing these world-class wines with our community.”

Margaret River Wine Association CEO Amanda Whiteland says she is excited to have retailers, sommeliers and key media from the IWSC, one of the world’s most highly regarded international wine competitions, coming to Margaret River.

“We believe judging Margaret River wines in Margaret River will immerse the IWSC judges in the region, giving them lasting impressions, as well as providing our winemakers an opportunity to meet and create relationships with key buyers and influencers,” she says.

“Partnering with the IWSC will help us showcase some of the best wines from our beautiful region to wine industry professionals and wine drinkers through a program of events and publicity of the awarded wines.” say Whiteland.

The team of international judges will be fully immersed in the region as they join local Australian judging experts.

Members of the judging panel will be announced in the following weeks.

The judging will take place from 29 August and results will be announced the following week on 4 September.
