The IBWC: the jury
The International Bulk Wine Competition follows guidelines of the OIV and every year boosts the world’s best bulk wines, regardless of their origin, only based on quality criteria. This year, 26 professionals from 20 nationalities were in charge of tasting almost 200 wine samples from 11 different origins that have participated in the contest. All jury members have pointed out the overall wine quality, as well as the relevance of a contest with these characteristics; a competition that contributes to a deeper understanding of the multiple possibilities of this wine category in the market.

*During this competition most of the guests were hosted in the Novotel or Motel One opposite of the RAI. But behind the RAI complex I discovered the CitizenM hotel where I have been in London and New York and I liked that very much! Great beds, very friendly staff, good breakfast (and fresh coffee!), quick check-in and -out and only a walk of 10-15 minutes through the Beatrix park to the RAI!
