The Trophies of DWM: A world-renowned competition

Medals for maximum enjoyment

With four annual international tasting competitions, German Wine Marketing is indispensable as a guarantee of quality in the international wine industry – it provides wine connoisseurs with important guidelines from the wine shop to the wine bar.


Over 17 000 wines from 40 countries are tasted by 400 highly qualified international wine tasters and awarded prizes. To meet the enormous demand, Trophies are now held in Germany, Portugal, and even Asia. The Trophies of DWM are thus among the most important events of the wine world.

Patronage with the highest standards of quality

All competitions are under the auspices of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) and the International Union of Oenologists (UIOE) and are thus the most strictly controlled competitions worldwide. This ensures that all Trophies are awarded according to the same fair rules and high standards of quality.

From Berlin to Daejeon: unbounded quality

The trophies of DWM include the Berlin Wine Trophy – the “House Trophy” of the Berlin-based company that is now held twice a year – as well as the Portugal Wine Trophy in Porto and the Asia Wine Trophy in Daejeon, South Korea, which immediately achieved groundbreaking success.

Trophy medals as valuable guides

There are countless varieties of wine, which makes it difficult for even the most discerning of connoisseurs to make the right choice. For a wine with a DWM medal, you can be sure that it is a top-quality product, which has been awarded by independent gourmets.

How does a trophy work?

At a Trophy, many different wines or spirits, which have been submitted by vintners and importers, are tasted by an independent international jury of experts in private and awarded points. During a Trophy, which usually takes place over three or four consecutive days, each juror may only taste a certain number of wines. The size of the jury therefore depends on the number of wines submitted. The number of possible entries is always limited.
