Our judging process was impeccable. All the wines were tasted blind by our formidable panel of 19 judges, including Sonal Holland MW.
Our judging panel blind-tasted a total of 353 wines over two days. The judges were given no information about the wine’s producer, country or region of origin, grape variety or even price. They were arranged in logical flights to allow for a fair assessment of its taste and quality. Each table had a total of 3 to 4 judges who discussed each wine score, moderated by Sonal Holland MW. Medals have been awarded on the basis of a 100-point score in a process conducted as per global standards. The judges declared 154 medal winners, from which 30 are the winners of the Best in Class Trophy.
