Judging Date: May 19-20, 2019 Sommeliers Choice Awards is an international wine competition within the United States that will be judged entirely by sommeliers only.

Wines will be judged according to criteria such as how well they pair with food items in addition to their overall versatility. Highest marks will be awarded to wines that provide value for money at their respective price points. Judges know the trade prices of each wine as they are judging each flight. Hence the winning wines would be the one that would score the highest for its quality, typicity, value, and packaging.
