Germany’s Winning Weins 2021

Wines of Germany UK is on the hunt for ‘Germany’s Winning Weins’ 2021 and we need your wines!

*Registrations are now closed*

‘Germany’s Winning Weins’ competition for 2021 is open for entries.  We are looking for the best wines from Germany, currently available in the UK. After selection by blind tasting by a panel of industry experts, the winning wines will be promoted to consumers and members of the trade and press, to inspire the nation to try new wines and discover what Germany has to offer today!

The Winning Weins will be communicated to consumer press and social influencers to generate awareness as well as being presented throughout the year at several key trade and consumer events in the UK including; The Big G Trade Summit and numerous other ad hoc activities.

If you think you have a wine in your portfolio that deserves to be shouted about, simply submit! Wines must be submitted into the following categories:

  • On-trade
  • Off-trade

If you are submitting wines in the off trade category, Wines of Germany has some specific press activity planned throughout the year, and we would encourage submissions that fall into the following themes:

  • Riesling
  • Pinot Paradise (Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir)
  • Sekt
  • German wine as an Aperitif

This having been said, submissions of other varieties are also very welcome.

Criteria:

German producers who have representation in the UK must enter through their importers.
Each wine will be tasted blind by the specialist panels who will only know the grape variety, region, vintage, price, and sector and the wines with the highest scores will be the wines chosen to form Wines of Germany’s bank of ‘Germany’s Winning Weins’ 2021. Please note, the quality to price ratio for each wine will be an important factor during the judging process.

How can you get involved?

If you would like to enter your German wines to be judged by the panel, please fill the online form, providing your contact details and information on the wines you would like to submit by 4th February 2021: registration form
