Berliner Wein Trophy

The world's largest OIV competition

Awarding of Specials Prizes

As always, the Special Prizes are only awarded in February Edition of Berliner Wein Trophy (Berlin Wine Trophy). Due to the fact February is sometimes too early for the wines of the new vintages to be judged, DWM launched the Summer Edition of BWT. In order that the results of the Summer Trophies take effect in the rating of Special Prizes, the medals of the awarded products in Summer Trophy will be included in next year's Special Prize evaluation. If a wine wins a medal in both Trophies (Summer Edition and next year's February Trophy), they will be counted as one in evaluation of Special Prizes.

Basic requirement for receiving a Special Prize is the prior winning of a Grand Gold or a Gold medal.
