Beverage Trade Network Competitions

17th Annual Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition ( WINE )




Judges will award Silver honors to wines that demonstrate above average character for the wine type and place of origin. Gold honors will be awarded to wines that deliver additional complexity and character and rise above a straightforward recommendation. Platinum awards will be reserved for the very best wines of the competition, wines that exhibit profound qualities as determined by the judges.

Gold awards will be assigned a score ranging between 90 and 93 points. All wines awarded Platinum will be given a score ranging between 94 and 100 points. Awards & scores will be announced on our Results page and by regular mail.

Judges' comments on all Gold and PLatinum award wines will be posted with the results, and all Platinum award wines will be reviewed independently at, the online wine publication.
