USA Wine Ratings is an international wine competition held in San Francisco. A competition that looks to recognize wine brands that look to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. It is a platform for wine brands to showcase their wines in front of some of the leading wine industry experts in the US. The goal of USA Wine Ratings is simple: to single out and shine the spotlight on those wine brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers. The competition will be judged on three key areas: Quality, Packaging and Value. Medals will be awarded to those wines that meet very specific judging criteria, with a goal of identifying wines that should become additions to restaurant wine lists and retailer shelves. Highest marks will be awarded to those wines that are high on quality, have attractive packaging and also provide great value for money. The judges present at the competition will be experts from the US wine industry and thus would be well-versed with the quality, value and packaging aspect.

The China Wine Competition looks to recognize, reward and help promote wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. For any wine brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list—and then, vitally, stay there—they need to be marketable and consumer-driven, not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it. That is why the China Wine Competition is different. It will single out and shine the spotlight on those wine brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers. The competition will judge wines in three key areas: 1. Quality 2. Value 3. Appearance To be an award winner you will need to have a top quality wine that offers both trade and consumer great value for their money, and you will need to look good and truly stand out on the shelf and back bar.
