The Melbourne 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.

We are pleased to invite your winery to participate in our upcoming Melbourne International Wine Competition (MIWC) this August 31st 2014. This international wine competition will be held in the heart of Melbourne. 

Melbourne International Wine Competition

After the success of running the New York International Spirits Competition, vintners from around the world asked us to replicate this successful competition with wine. The wine industry have continued to take notice by having a TRADE ONLY blind judging panel wine competition judging the wine by its category and actual price. The retail store buyer, sommelier, restaurant beverage director, hotelier, distributor and importer like in New York will be our judges in Melbourne. We feel these judges whose livelihood rely upon their skill set truly know what the consumer wants as they receive on a daily basis the feedback from the consumer of what is good and what will sell.

The respect of the New York International Wine Competition has led to wine producers, importers, distributors, retail store buyers and sommeliers to ask us to bring this same philosophy to the Pacific Region. That is why we have launched this year the Melbourne International Wine Competition and the Melbourne International Spirits Competition.


The Benefits
