BTN members will get special pricing and benefits for the NYI Wine Competition.
The New York International Wine Competition is the first major international wine competition with TRADE ONLY judges from top to bottom that consist of people who are buyers from the top retail stores, restaurant owners, sommeliers, hotel beverage directors, distributors and importers. Unlike other competitions, these judges have purchasing power and the ability to make a direct impact on brand sales.
In our 4th year we have become one of the most respected international wine competition in the world because our judges are real trade buyers judging the wine by its category and actual price. We call it the “Real World”. As the saying goes….If you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere!
This year based upon feedback from our trade buyer judges who have seen a growing demand from consumers about Organic wine we have implemented a Organic and Natural Section in the competition. NYIWC has added new divisions including the Certified Organic, Certified Biodynamic, Natural Organic and Natural Biodynamic. We will be using the same categories as the regular wines and for example Certified Organic Wines will be judged with Certified Organic wines.
When: May 18-19th, 2014
Where: 3 West Club at 3 West 51st New York, New York
