The International Wine Challenge (IWC), the world’s most prestigious and influential independent wine competition, is proud to announce an exciting opportunity to taste a selection of the 2011 Gold Medal award-winning wines from this year’s competition whilst rubbing shoulders with wine legend and TV personality Oz Clarke and his fellow Co-Chairmen Tim Atkin MW, Sam Harrop MW, Charles Metcalfe and Derek Smedley MW.
The event showcases the high quality of the Gold medal winning wines and sake awarded during the competition and is also the first opportunity for you to taste the wines that have been awarded Regional and National Trophies by the IWC judges.
Held at one of the foremost wine tasting venues in London, on 29 June the Lords Nursery Pavilion will present IWC Gold medal wines from a selection of countries that entered the Challenge including Australia, France, Italy, South Africa, Spain, USA and England’s Denbies Wine Estate Chalk Ridge Rosé – the only rosé in the world to win a Gold medal at the IWC.
Tickets to the show are now on sale and the IWC are offering a £5 saving on the usual ticket price (standard price £20) to Love Food Love Drink subscribers by quoting code ‘Love’. Take the opportunity to taste with the experts and see why the wines have achieved their Gold and Trophy status Attendance is by advance ticket only. Doors open at 6pm and close at 9pm.
Over 400 experienced judges, including many Masters of Wine, meticulously tasted the IWC’s medal-winning wines, with each wine being tested at least three, and sometimes up to six, times, with marks for faithfulness to variety, country, region and vintage. Wine lovers can therefore be confident when choosing a wine featuring the IWC logo that it has been rigorously judged.
