How does the competition work?

The BWW competition is a unique worldwide wine competition. Millions of consumers around the world together with thousands of wine professionals can take part in the competition.

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 give votes to wines in the competition according to their preference. One person can give several votes to different wines. The votes are given to wines on Tastingbook.com service during 3-months voting phase, where the ranking of most voted wines can be followed in real-time.

In the second phase 50 most voted wines in each main category qualifies to finals. In the finals, the jury formed by Tastingbook.com wine professionals appraise the wines by category. All of the wines in the finals are tasted blind.

Producers are asked to send samples for this appraisal of only those wines that qualifies in the finals.

The first voting phase begins on July 1st, 2020. Producers can enter their wines for the competition until March 30th, 2020.

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 Magazine and wine investing magazine - FINEst Wines.

- Tastingbook.com, the world's largest wine information source. Tastingbook started in 2015 and have today over million pages of wine information and at best, over 1.5 million monthly visitors. Over 7000 wine professionals from 112 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, and 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.

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.

How are the votes counted?

The votes are counted during the first phase of the competition by Tastingbook.com service. The Tastingbook shows the number of votes given for each wine on its wine pages and keeps up a constantly updated wine ranking list by votes on Tastingbook site which can be followed by anyone who enters in to the Tastinbook.com. The votes do not count anymore in the finals, where finalist wines are ranked by professionals by scores from 100-point scale.

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 final's venue.

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. It is relevant to assess wines in their own price categories, just like consumers do when deciding which wine to buy.

How are the results released?

One can follow the current standings of the wines during the voting period on Tastingbook.com. The list of the most voted wines are published after the first phase in October 2020. The awards and winners of the competition are published on press releases in the mid of October 2020.

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.
