Vancouver magazine’s International Wine Competition is the largest judging of international and domestic wines in Western Canada. Inspired by the magazine’s renowned Restaurant Awards, now in their 22nd year, the competition focuses on wines available in BC’s dynamic market.
A winery or sales agent can enter any domestic or imported table, sparkling, or fortified wine that is legally sold in BC.
Our judges are carefully selected and include renowned wine experts, sommeliers, journalists and educators. For a list of past judges and an explanation of our judging process, click here.
