In its 38th year, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) is accepted as the world’s most rigorous, impartial and influential annual wine competition.

There is one annual tasting for the International Wine Challenge (IWC). This will take place in April every year.

The rigorous IWC judging process assesses every wine ‘blind’ and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage.  Each IWC medal-winning wine will be tasted on at least three separate occasions by a minimum of 2 panels of judges tasting together, and then tasted by 2 Co-Chairs to verify the panel results.  The IWC judging teams include experts and influencers from the international wine industry, commercial decision makers, buyers and MWs working in unison to find the highest quality wines each year from the 52 wine-producing countries represented in the competition.

Today we’re proud to share the best news from our Winery in Rioja Alta, BODEGAS CIALU, has been awarded with SILVER medal thanks to CIALU CRIANZA D.O.Ca RIOJA VINTAGE 2018. We celebrate this award at the same time our new vintage is released.
