Berliner Wine Trophy - World's Largest OIV Wine Competition
Top 10 advantages of our wine challenge
New standards in the wine scene
In cooperation with the corresponding committees, the maximum number of submissions for the Berliner Wine Trophy has been limited to 7,000 per event. Unfortunately, if this self-imposed limit was exceeded, as on previous occasions, we will have to close the registration period before the established deadline.
For us, DWM – Deutsche Wein Marketing, this limitation is a logical step in the quality approach with which we operate and that we implement in all areas of work. With the patronage of the OIV and the UIOE (and the strict controls that this entails), with the notarial supervision, the oenological analyzes of the awarded wines, and much more, we and all the members of the jury are ready to give the submitted products all the appreciation they deserve.
At the same time, this measure prevents an inflationary increase of award-winning wines with the Berliner Wine Trophy medal. It has always been something special to receive this award, and it should remain so. Therefore, participants should not wait until the last moment but submit the wines as soon as possible.

We face this challenge together
For us, the task was therefore to harmonise the legal requirements with the guidelines of the OIV, the UIOE, and VinoFed. And this to such a degree that the Berliner Wine Trophy will take place at the high-quality level that you are accustomed to as a submitter and as a jury member.
We have therefore decided to carry out our wine challenge taking into account the following measures:
• The tasting will be divided into 3 slots of 3-4 days each
• There is an ionized aerosol-purifying tunnel at the entrance to the premises
• Rapid tests are conducted to everyone involved in the event
• There will be a maximum number of persons per room, respecting the current regulations
• The tasting seats are individually protected with Plexiglas panels
• Per slot there will be a maximum of 20 jury groups on an area of almost 1,500 m², so that sufficient distance can be kept
• The jurors and thus the jury groups will alternate after each slot. It could happen that individual judges were present at several slots
• All other basic hygiene rules will also be respected (FFP2 mask, gloves, safe distance, etc)
• In addition to all the new measures, the standards of the Berliner Wine Trophy will, of course, remain unchanged and will, as always, be strictly monitored by multiple authorities (OIV, UIOE, VinoFed, Notary)
The tasting process will be streamlined by these measures, but its quality is in no way compromised. We are all delighted to be able to present the Berliner Wine Trophy to you in this particular way and look forward to presenting the wines to the expert jury.
