About the Competition

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 26th year), the competition focuses on wines available to consumers in B.C.’s dynamic market. Your wines deserve to be part of this important competition. Get in at the early bird rate.


Who can enter?

A winery or sales agent can enter any domestic or imported table, sparkling, fortified wine, fruit wine or sake that’s legally sold in B.C.



We simply have the best judges this province has to offer. They are influential, high-profile wine experts, sommeliers, buyers, journalists and educators. They cherish being part of the judging and take great pride in the results, especially when they see consumers pulling the awards results out of their pocket while scanning the wine shelves.
