IWSC the competition:

Now in its 48th year, the International Wine & Spirit Competition remains as relevant today as it did when wine chemist Anton Massel founded ‘Club Oenologique’ in 1969. Massel had the idea of creating a wine and spirit competition which was based not just on organoleptic judgement but where all entries also had to undergo chemical analysis.

In 1978 the name was changed to the ‘International Wine & Spirit Competition’ and the disciplines of the Competition were refined into what we know the competition to be today.
The original aim of the Competition was to award excellence to wines and spirits worldwide and this aim remains the same today, encouraging recognition for quality products.

The Competition is proud to set the international benchmark for quality remaining unique with dedicated tasting premises, a permanent onsite cellar and over 400 global experts judging products for 7 months of the year.

The results of IWSC:

Again this year we sent samples of our Franciacorta wines to the tasting experts of the IWSC contest. The results are interesting and, although pleased, they always incite us to do better.

Our Franciacorta La Montina Extra Brut was rewarded with an  IWSC bronze medal.

Silver IWSC medal  for our Franciacorta Riserva Baiana Pas Dosé 2008.

“Comparing with an expert international public  is always positive for our experiential luggage, and guides allow consumers to have impartial and objective judgments about the products. IWSC, with its 48-year history and its panel of experts, is definitely a reliable meter of judgment for us and for those who choose our Franciacorta La Montina “– Michele Bozza, export and marketing manager La Montina
