IWC Awards 2014

The International Wine Challenge is an annual competition awarding medals and commendations to wines from around the world after a rigorous blind tasting.

It’s a sign of the seriousness of which English wines are being taken that the awards were announced at the Trade Tasting organised by English Wine Producers, including early notification of Trophy Awards.

The full list of 2014 medallists and commended wines from the UK is shown below in alphabetical order with links to those vineyards that are visitor-friendly. Our presentation is rather different from the normal lists as we believe our readers will want to easily see which cellar door offers quality wines of the style they enjoy.

As ever, it should be noted that not all producers enter the competition.

Do go and check out the winning Cellar Doors – you know it’s going to be good!
