World's Largest OIV Wine Contests

The International Organization for Vine and Wine (OIV) granted patronage to only 27 wine competitions worldwide in 2019. This patronage is considered one of the highest recognition for a wine contest. Deutsche Wein Marketing has been setting standards for international wine competitions for 25 years. All tastings are not only under the patronage of the OIV but also under the auspices of the International Union of Oenologists (UIOE) and notary supervision. The DWM Wine Trophies are, therefore, considered to be among the most strictly controlled wine competitions worldwide.

Berliner Wine Trophy

OIV patronage since 2004

The Berliner Wine Trophy has become the world’s most important and largest international wine competition under the patronage of the OIV and the UIOE and brings together renowned experts from all over the world. With the self-imposed limit of 7,000 submissions each in February and July, the BWT is the first international wine contest that has introduced a limit for quality reasons.

Asia Wine Trophy

OIV patronage since 2013

In Asia, wine consumption has increased significantly in recent years. At the same time, the distinctions of DWM have made a name for themselves as a quality sign. Therefore, in 2013, the Asia Wine Trophy was launched. Meanwhile, the AWT has become one of the TOP wine challenges in Asia and one of the largest international competitions worldwide. As part of Asia Wine Week, about 150 international experts taste and rate more than 4,000 wines.

Portugal Wine Trophy

OIV patronage since 2014

In 2019, the Portugal Wine Trophy took place for the sixth time. Once again, the PWT played a prominent role in the international ranking of wine competitions, with more than 2,200 submitted samples. Fantastic wines from all over the world, but especially from the host country, Portugal, have made life difficult for the jurors for 4 days; according to the OIV rules only 30% of the submitted wines can be awarded.

Control. Transparency. Quality.

The OIV (International Organization of Vine and Wine) is an intergovernmental organization with recognized competence in the vine and wine sector, which now unites 47 countries. The OIV has replaced the International Department of Vine and Wine and could therefore be colloquially referred to as the World Wine Authority.

Obtaining the patronage of the OIV is the highest honor for a wine competition. After years of monitoring, all member states will vote on whether a certain competition receives the patronage or not. And only a unanimous result leads to the desired patronage. The special feature is that the patronage always applies only for one year and must be renewed individually, for each competition. In 2019, only 27 competitions worldwide were conducted under patronage.

The Deutsche Wein Marketing, with 3 international wine contests, is the largest wine event organizer within the scope of the OIV competitions. Achieving this is only possible with the consistent adherence to the strict rules of the OIV, excellent objective wine experts and a permanent further development of the quality controls.
