San Francisco International Wine Competition

The largest and most influential international wine competition in America, the San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC) has been setting the standard for professional wine judging since its debut in 1980. Now in its 37th year, the SFIWC maintains the highest level of integrity with a blind-tasting system performed by a highly experienced panel of internationally acclaimed wine experts. A SFIWC medal has been established as a reliable indication of wine excellence, and wines recognized as medal-worthy by their judges are universally understood to be among the very best. A SFIWC medal is not simply a huge feather in the cap of the winning winery; a well-promoted SFIWC award can also dramatically improve a wine’s sales and competitive edge.
