What does Champions Wine reward?
Objective wine quality
Overall product excellence
The existence of multiple competitions and guides in the wine sector makes it necessary to value those wines that stand out but not only in some of these competitions, as they are not always scored on equal terms. See the case of competitions such as MonoVino (only monovarietal wines), Tempranillos al Mundo (only of this variety), Vino y Mujer (wines made and tasted by women), Guide to the cheapest wines, Guide to Galician wines, etc. There are individual characteristics that propose the best wines but by individualized criteria.
Champions Wine proposes that these great wines compete with each other and submit to the most demanding jury, to be able to get as close as possible to the certainty that they are real the best among the best wines of Spain.
The criterion followed in the tastings is that of the Official Competitions. That is, the quality of the wines is objectively valued in blind tastings, without taking into account the prices or the image, although the lowest value wine or the best presentation will also be awarded a Special Distinction.
Only the wines that have obtained can participate Gold, Great gold or equivalent distinctions in Official Competitions, and wines with high scores in Guides published in Spain.
The final objective of this Contest is to make the Quality of Wine recognizable, verified and certified by Official Contests and endorsed by prestigious Guides, and to give value to wines with Gold medals or high scores in Spanish publications, beyond individual opinions or commercials that are transferred to consumers through social networks and other means little specialized in this matter.
