2019 World's Most Admired Wine Brands Awards Party

Most Admired Wine Brands Wine Intelligence

Since 2011 Drinks International has been celebrating and rewarding the greatest wine brands on the planet with its annual ‘World’s Most Admired Wine Brands’ industry survey.

The prestigious list has seen great wines from every corner of the world voted by our carefully selected international academy of more than 200 wine buyers, masters of wines, journalists and wine writers. Every year we ask them to nominate the wine brands they admire the most, based on criteria such as consistent  or improving quality, reflection of the country of origin, marketing & packaging, broad appeal, and response to the aspirations and tastes of the target audience. The result has been  a fascinating and evolving insight into what makes a truly great wine brand.
