Portugal Wine Trophy 2018
The fifth edition with many additional benefits
The Portugal Wine Trophy took place for the first time in 2014. In Porto more than 50 jury members from Portugal and many other countries came to taste and evaluate the surprising number of over 1,000 different samples from all around the wolrd. Thus, right from the start, the Portugal Wine Trophy was one of the biggest competitions in the country. In 2017, the Portugal Wine Trophy was also playing a prominent role in the international ranking of wine competitions. From the 1,773 tasted wines (1,831 submitted wines), 551 were awarded. In addition to the advantages already known, which offered an award to the submitter, we have increased the benefits of the Portugal Wine Trophy this year, now with further innovations:
The logistics: from Berlin we take over
All participant samples for the Portugal Wine Trophy will be conveniently sent to Berlin. Shipping to Portugal - including customs clearance and charges will be taken care of by German Wine Marketing from Berlin.
The highest award with fair fees
The opportunity to win one of the most coveted medals increases with each wine submitted. For you as producers, we have introduced a per hectare fee - to maximise your benefits. This means: when you submit your wines, there is a maximum limit for fees. This gives you the chance to reduce your fee for each wine.
Portugal Wine Trophy and Asia Wine Trophy: 2 Trophies for 1 fee
Combined participation in the Portugal Wine Trophy and Asia Wine Trophy at no additional cost
Thanks to co-working with the city of Daejeon in Corea, all the wines submitted to the Portugal Wine Trophy can be registered also for the Asia Wine Trophy for free. Not only is the registration fee waived, the shipping costs from Berlin / Porto to Corea, customs fees and all other costs incurred are paid for by the DWM in cooperation with the city of Daejeon.
When enrolling for the Portugal Wine Trophy simply click the button for participation in Asia Wine Trophy and without much effort your wine / sparkling wine is automatically registered for both competitions.
An additional 6 bottles of the registered products will be required for tasting in Asia wich you can send to DWM in Berlin either together with the samples for Portugal or at a later date.
Products enrolled for the Asia Wine Trophy that receive an award, will of course count towards the results of the Golden League.
Presentation of the awarded wines at the Asia Wine Business Week
At the end of August, the DWM in cooperation with the City of Daejeon will hold Asia Wine Business Week in South Corea organised under the leadership of our Asia Director, Chan Jun Park. In addition to the Asia Wine Trophy, the Asia Wine Buyers Conference wich was developed by Mr. Chan Jun Park, will take place every day. During 5 days more than 100 different seminars / presentations / performances and lectures on the international wine market will be given by many professionals from all around the world. The winning wines of different Trophies from the last years will be presented during this Asia Wine Buyers Conference. About 5,000 trade visitors from Asia are expected during the Asia Wine Buyers Conference.
The most highly valuable international wine contest
The results for the Portugal Wine Trophy will, of course, be considered for the Golden League. The Golden League is the competition in wich the results of the various Tophies are brought together to honour the best producers at the end of the year. In order to ensure a level playing field for individual businesses prices are set according to the size of individual companies (hectare dependent).
The exact guidelines of the Golden League that is automatically organized as an additional competition to the different Wine Trophies and the various award categories and the prizes awarded for this can be found in the Golden League area.
Strict criteria, esteemed medals
According to the guidelines of the OIV, the wines are divided into subgroups and awarded at the Portugal Wine Trophy - which guarantees a fair evaluation of all submitted samples. This is a clear marketing advantage for manufacturers and distributors because awards are an ever stronger selling point for consumers.
