BWW-The Best Wine of the World-competition is by far the toughest wine competition on this planet. Unlike any other industry competition, only 1% of the wines involved will be awarded.

After the voting period, only 180 most voted wines in six different categories remained in the Finals, organized in January 2018.

In the Finals the wines were evaluated and ranked three different times as blind by the panels of Tasting Book Professionals (selected Judges from over 7000 Pros: Wine writers, bloggers, MW's. Wine makers etc.)

The six main categories included red wine, white wine, rose wine, sparkling wine, fortified wine and champagne. Under each category, the best wines were also awarded according to price level and country.
