2020 Melbourne International Wine Competition




The Melbourne International Wine Competition medals will be awarded on a merit basis by a majority vote. The judges are instructed to grant no awards or medals when, in their opinion, the wines are not ones they would import, distribute, buy or sell in their businesses based on product and price category. Judges are asked to evaluate the wines in silence until all panel members have finished their evaluation and then open a discussion to reach a consensus. Judge votes are recorded by a MIWC staff moderator. If there is a significant difference among the judges’ votes, panellists are encouraged to reach a consensus and, if needed, seek counsel from the Head Judge Adam Levy.
- Award levels are Double Gold, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
1. Double Gold: Phenomenal Product (Must Be Unanimous Decision by Panelists)
2. Gold: Buyers “Love” It
3. Silver: Buyers “Like” It
4. Bronze: Buyers would purchase it
- Double Gold award winners will be re-tasted by all panellists to establish which brands may be eligible to receive a ‘Best of Category’ endorsement in its pricing category.
