BWW Competition Q&A

How does the competition work?

The BWW competition is a unique worldwide wine competition. Millions of customers around the world together with thousands of wine professionals, select the finalist wines, which are then judged by professionals around the world. BWW is the largest wine competition in the world, by any measure – number of wines, involvement of consumers and the number of judges.

The competition is carried out in two phases. In the first phase consumers and professionals appraise wines in a natural tasting environment, i.e. at home, with friends, in restaurants, etc. and gives votes to wines in the competition. During the voting period people can vote for their favorite wines on Tastingbook.com, Facebook, or Instagram.

In the second phase twenty wines moves to the finals in the each gatecory. Consumers have chosen 10 of them by voting and tastingbook’s over 6000 wine professionals have chosen other 10 finalist. In the finals only wine professionals appraise the wines by category. All of the wines in the finals are tasted blind. Producers are asked to send samples for appraisal of only those wines that reach the finals. The finals are held on three continents: Australian and New Zealand wines in Australia, European wines in Europe, and wines of Americas in the United States.

The first voting phase begins on Jul 31, 2017. Producers can enter their wines for the competition up until July 30, 2017. Participants can sign up at www.bestwineoftheworld.com or at the Tastingbook stand in Bordeaux Vinexpo 2017. At this stage producers do not need to send in any wine samples.

Who is behind the BWW

BWW has been created by two leading medias in its field.

- The World’s leading Fine Wine magazines - FINE Magazines, who publish wine magazines in Scandinavia, Europe, USA, India and Australia. FINE is also publishing the world’s only Champagne Magazines and Wine investing magazine.

- Tastingbook.com, the world largest wine information source. Tastingbook started in 2015 and have today over million pages of wine information and around 1.5 millions visitors in every month. Over 6000 wine professionals from 75 countries are keeping it updated. Tastingbook will also be the voting platform for BWW.

Why votes?

We think it is important that millions of consumers around the world join thousands of experts to choose the best wines of the world. Voting for wines is simple and easy.

Where can you vote for wines?

Every wine that enters in BWW competition, will get an own wine page in Tastingbook where the wine can be voted. The wine will also get votes in Tastingbook every time wine is tasted and scored in the Tastingbook.com by Tastingbook professionals. Professionals points are converted into the votes. The wine can be voted also in Facebook and Instagram.

Who votes for the wines?

Any Internet user on any device can vote for wines. Tastingbook.com alone has over 1.5 million monthly users from over 110 countries. We also hope that all producers make sure their own constituent groups and wine distributors vote for their wine. The millions of readers of FINE Magazines in over 85 countries will also be activated to vote.

How are the votes counted?

In the first phase of the competition the participating wines are voted for by name and vintage. While selecting the finalists the votes received by each wine during the voting period are added up and 20 wines with the most votes in each category are invited for the finals.

Who are the judges?

In the first phase of the competition the judges are millions of wine consumers and professionals. In the second phase the jury consists of Tastingbook’s wine professionals, mainly wine writers, sommeliers, MW’s and winemakers.

Why are the winemakers included in jury members?

Who understands wines the best? The people who make them. That is why our juries include the people who make some of the most esteemed wines in the world.

Why don’t I have to send wines to the BWW Competition in the first phase?

Success in the competition is not based on a single appraisal event, but on the voters’ previous or current experiences of the wine in its natural tasting environment.

This makes it easy and affordable to sign up. It also ensures that all wines have equal opportunity to receive votes, and that votes are given for wines already on the market and not for samples producers send specifically for the competition.

We only ask samples for the wines that qualifies into finals.

For all wines that qualify in the finals, we ask for 4 samples of each wine to be delivered to our finals' location – in Australia, Europe or United States.

Why are we also using price categories?

We want to serve all wine consumers in the world and give them information on the best wines in each price range. We also think it is just to appraise the wines in their own price categories, just like consumers do when deciding which wine to buy.

How are the results released?

You can monitor the current standings of the wines during the voting period on Tastingbook.com, Facebook, and Instagram.The winners of the competition are announced in the BWW gala in US, on January 25, 2018. Along with the winners the wines that have reached the top 20 are awarded. Wines that placed well in the competition are awarded certificates and bottle stickers that can be ordered separately.

What happens if the competition is cancelled?

If the competition is cancelled due to reasons dependent on the organizer the entrance fee will be refunded in total. If the competition is cancelled due to reasons not dependent on the organizer the organizer is not obligated to refund the entrance fee.
