Since its premiere in 2004, the Berliner Wine Trophy has become the largest wine competition of the world and most important international wine tasting of Germany under the patronage of the OIV and the UIOE. BWT brings well-known producers and distributors from around the world together every year, and the number of samples submitted is steadily growing with almost 14,000 entries yearly (Winter and Summer edition).
This past year, the Berliner Wine Trophy has set once again new standards with over 13,600 wine samples submitted. Due to the limited contingent of places, many submissions could not be accepted by the end of the registration period. In the last Winter Edition, almost 2,000 participants from 40 countries have registered their products. Also submitters from countries with little tradition of viticulture are among the participants, which demonstrates the high international reputation of the Berliner Wine Trophy.
For four days, the wines will be tasted by an independent panel of experts consisting in oenologists, sommeliers, masters of wine, experienced traders, winegrowers, journalists, etc. The products will be rated according to the regulations and guidelines of OIV and UIOE, using the 100-point score system (blind tasting). That includes categories such as red wine, white wine, rosé wine, rotling, vinho verde, sparkling wine (champagne, cava, prosecco, sekt, espumante, etc.), liquor / fortified wine (port, madeira, sherry, málaga, marsala, etc.)
Quality is the most important element for us. Berliner Wine Trophy was the first in the scene to introduce, among other things, oenological analyses of awarded wines and notarial supervision. Unlike other wine contests, only 30% of the tasted products can be awarded (according to OIV rules). That means only the best products have the honour of receiving a Berliner Wine Trophy medal.
