Sid Patel: USA Wine Ratings diligently abets the connection between award-winning wine & the trade.

25/06/2022 It’s the connection between award-winning wine and the trade community that the organizer, Beverage Trade Network aims to strengthen with 2022 USA Wine Ratings.

Wine producers and winemakers around the world are fixated on creating the best styles and blends of their wines. But however hard they work to get their products right it will all come to nothing unless they can find sommeliers, wine buyers, or wine store managers and assistants who can equally believe in what they are making in order to use and sell them in their outlets. 

Winning a medal in an international drinks competition has long been regarded as key to getting into the minds of the most important drinks buyers who might end up listing and stocking your brand. The USA Wine Ratings looks to take that to the next stage in two key ways.

Influential judges

First, its judges are made up of some of the most influential national and regional wine buyers and master’s of wine – arguably the world’s most prestigious and influential drinks and wine market in the world. By tasting, sipping, and assessing your products the judges are also the ones that will potentially then go on to then pour and serve them in their outlets.

Getting in front of the trade buyer and then being able to see your package is a great benefit as buyers will later be able to recognize the brands they liked. The USA Wine Ratings rates by quality, value, and package - exactly how trade buys and how their consumers purchase.

Secondly, the USA Spirits Ratings is now supported by the launch of the Los Angeles Drinks Guide, Chicago Drinks Guide, New York Drinks Guide, and San Francisco Drinks Guide that has been introduced this year by the event owners, the Beverage Trade Network, to act as a platform to help promote and share the stories of the brands, wineries, and importers of the products that make up is medal and trophy winners.
