The USA Wine Ratings looks to recognize, reward and help promote wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. For any wine brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list – and then vitally, stay there – they need to be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.

Who Is Going to Judge Your Wines?

The 2019 USA Wine Ratings will be assessed and judged by a leading panel of top-level wine buyers with current direct commercial buying responsibility. Or wine consultants and experts who are also directly involved in the development of new wine brands or buying wine for commercial resale.

The list of judges will be drawn from leading retail chains, wholesalers, distributors, and on-trade groups across a variety of channels and disciplines including multiple retailing, convenience stores, cash and carries, specialist retailers, casual and fine dining, hospitality and the travel industry.

How Will You Benefit from Entering Your Wines?

USA Wine Ratings rewards wines that are made well, taste great, offer great value for money and stand out on the shelf. Winning UWR Gold clearly demonstrates the trade how well the wine will be perceived in the market and will give the trade a very good indicator to stock that wine.

Here are some of the benefits and reasons on why you should enter your wines in USA Wine Ratings.

  • Raise your brands’ profile, prestige, and credibility with importers, distributors, press, retailers, and consumers
  • Instill confidence in the trade buyer about the marketability of your wine as UWR rates wines by its value, package, and quality.
  • Winners to be showcased at UWR participating events at no extra fees.
  • Winners to get access to stickers and all winning materials at no extra fees.
  • Increase product sales
  • Boost awareness of your brand in the media via extensive editorial and press coverage via UWR media partners
  • Use the UWR logo on packaging and as part of your own promotional plan
  • Social media promotion of winners ALL YEAR ROUND
  • Gold winners contact data will be sent to all UWR buyers with the intent to make a direct connection between the buyer and the supplier.

All the wines entered in the USA Wine Ratings will be showcased and kept for tasting at the 2020 USA Trade Tasting (USATT) on May 26-27, where 5000+ buyers are invited to trade and network.
