IWC Awards 2015

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

Awards are made in two tranches; there is no difference in quality, this is merely to allow producers from around the world to enter the competition as soon as their wines are ready.

The full list of 2015 medallists and commended wines (Tranche 1 & Tranche 2) 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!
