9. 7.19 International Wine & Spirit Competition Results

Sherry has won 63 medals in the Internatiomal Wine & Spirit Competition, 13 of them gold, meaning they scored 85 points or more. At 50 years old the IWSC is the leading wine competition with around 400 international judges consisting of Masters of Wine, wine buyers, sommeliers and specialist journalists. The winners are once again the usual suspects. It would be good to see some others featuring in the medal tally, but you need good distributin for it to be worth while. And it costs quite a lot to enter: you have to submit 4 samples of each wine at 139 (+VAT) each plus cost of postage, and rolls of bottle stickers if you win anything. The Trophy and Gold winners were:
