Berliner Wein Trophy

The world's largest OIV competition

Participation fee

The participation fee for each sample submitted is € 135.00. In Germany, an added amount of €25.65 (19%) is to be paid as legal VAT. For countries in the European Union and other third party countries, VAT is not incurred with presentation of a valid VAT ID number.
In order to allow individual wine-producing companies to enjoy greater participation, the following special regulations have been introduced for wine-producing companies:

 

The individual producers are grouped according to the size of their operation, with the surface area of their vineyards serving as the basis for the calculation. The participation fee for these companies is also € 135.00 per fee.

The following scale applies:

The calculation is always based on the actual number of wines submitted, whereby the size of the wine-producing company is definitive for the maximum applicable number of fees. The regulation does not apply to wine-producing companies which increase their production through the additional purchase of grapes, must, or cask wine. They will be charged according to the number of submitted wines. IWM reserves the right to check the indicated size of the companies, and in the event of any discrepancies to use the actual size as the basis for calculating fees.

Should more wines be submitted than are covered by the hectare-dependent fee, these will be calculated with the same key (3 wines – 1 fee). If fewer wines are submitted than are covered by the hectare-dependent fee, then the fee will be calculated based on the actual number of submitted wines. The participation fees must be paid in full to International Wine Marketing at least 10 days in advance of the requisite tasting. Otherwise the submitted sample will be excluded from the tasting.

Examples for Calculating the Maximum Hectare Fee for Winegrowing Operations without Acquisition

 

Example 1

A larger number of wines is submitted than the maximum fee

Size of the company : 7,5 Hectares
Submitted number of samples : 6
Maximum fee for up to 10 hectares : 2
Fee to be paid : 2 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 270.00 plus VAT
Savings : 4 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 540.00 plus VAT

Average price per submitted sample € 45.00 plus VAT

 

Example 2

Size of the company : 4 hectares
Number of submitted samples : 9
Max. fees up to 5 hectares : 1
Number of wines not included in calculation : 2
Additional fees : 2 ( 6 wines – 1 fee for 3 wines )
Fees due: 3 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 405.00 plus VAT
Savings: 6 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 810.00 plus VAT

Average price per submitted sample € 45,00 plus VAT

 

Example 3

Size of the company : 38 Hektar
Submitted number of samples : 17
Maximum fee for up to 40 hectares : 8
Fee to be paid : 8 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 1,080.00 plus VAT
Ersparnis : 9 x 135,00 € = 1.215,00 € zzgl. MwSt
Savings : 9 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 1,215.00 plus VAT

Average price per submitted sample € 63,53 plus VAT

 

Example 4

A smaller number of wines is submitted than would cover the maximum fee.

Size of the company : 38 hectares
Submitted number of samples : 3
Maximum fee for up to 40 hectares : 8
Fee to be paid : 3 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 405.00 plus VAT

Average price per submitted sample: 135,00 € plus VAT

 

Example 5

It is exactly submitted the amount of the maximum fee.

Size of the company : 20 hectares
Submitted number of samples : 4
Maximum fee for up to 40 hectares : 4
Fee to be paid : 4 x € 135.00 plus VAT = € 540.00 plus VAT
