+ Why should I submit wines to DWM Trophies?

We organise the largest competitions and fairs worldwide, but the most important factor is the quality control: through the patronage of the OIV, the UIOE and the VinoFed, the Trophies of the DWM belong to the most strictly controlled wine competitions.

+ Who is the OIV?

The OIV (Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin) is an intergovernmental organization with a specific and technical orientation and recognized competence in the area of wine, vine, wine-based drinks, raisins and other vine products. On the basis of its recommendations and international standards and guidelines, it promotes the harmonization and exchange of information and knowledge based on a scientific basis with the goal of improving the productivity, product-safety and quality as well as the conditions of production and marketing of wine-growing products.

+ Who is the UIOE?

The UIOE (Union Internationale des OEnologues) unites under its patronage a multitude of national professional associations around the viticulture and wine making. The highly esteemed association is thus the voice of the most important wine associations all over the world. Its mission is to promote and protect both the occupational and economic interests of the oenologists and the related professions.

+ Who is the VinoFed?

The VinoFed (World Federation of Major International Wine and Spirits competitions) was created to ensure the quality of wine and spirits contests. Together with the OIV, the demanding standards and guidelines for competitions are developed and constantly inspected. The producers are given the assurance that their products will be accurately evaluated by competent international tasters. The ambition is absolute credibility and authenticity of the VinoFed members to ensure the high quality of the awarded wines.
