How does a DWM Wine Trophy work?

At a Wine Trophy, many different wines or spirits which have been submitted by winemakers and importers, are tasted by an independent international jury of experts in private and award their points. During a the tasting, which usually takes place over 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.
