the true test of quality

We are thrilled to have won double gold this year in both the Decanter world wine awards and the International Wine Challenge awards.

Established in 1969, The International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) was the first competition of its kind, set up to seek out, reward and promote the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs. Now in its 46th year, The IWSC’s relentless pursuit of excellence underpins every aspect of the competition today.

What sets the IWSC apart is the formidable reputation of its judging process. Currently receiving entries from around 90 countries, the IWSC is truly international in its reach and recognition.

We are delighted to announce that the Upperton Aurora 2013 has won a ‘Silver Outstanding’ medal at the IWSC competition this year. We are thrilled by the response to this wine from both the trade and public.

Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most prestigious wine competition judged by top wine experts from around the world. The DWWA is respected internationally as an unrivalled source of wine recommendations.

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 34th year. The IWC is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
