Enter your wines, beers and spirits before August 31 to save


There are many ways to assess a wine, from the scientific analysis that takes place at a winery, to the systematic approach to wine tasting taught by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. But for the organisers behind the first London Wine, Spirits and Beer Competition it is ultimately about judging products on how drinkable they are.

All 3 competition judges are strictly trade only, or master’s of wine or master sommeliers
