  3. PR and bragging rights.



About our Women Judges


They include a list of top-notch highly trained professional women in the wine industry and wine media who take their task very seriously! Their influence can have far-reaching effects on your wine consumers and their purchases. Find out which wines suit their pallets.


Award for Best Woman Winemaker


If your winery has a woman winemaker, be sure to note it at time of entry.  Aside from judging wines on their own merit made by both men and women, a special award will be given to the Best Woman Winemaker based on wines made just by women.


Why a Women's Wine Competition?

So, who does the nightly wine shopping in your home?


You may find it interesting that most of the wine consumed at home is primarily purchased by women.  But as a winemaker, how do you know which wine she will prefer?



One way is to enter your wine in the International Women’s Wine Competition, judged entirely by wine industry professional women.  Its mission?  To uniquely identify specific wines that women will enjoy and ultimately purchase.

Why produce a women’s wine competition?  Event founder and president, Debra Del Fiorentino says, “This competition’s niche appeal certainly gives women their own ‘voice’, when selecting a wine.  The judges recognize not only the best wines submitted, but also the wines they feel would appeal most to women wine buyers and consumers. And even though a special nod goes to the best woman winemaker, it’s important to know that this competition is open to all winemakers, male and female alike.”
