Top Wine Buyers taking part in USA Wine Ratings. Enter your wines before June 30, 2022, to get in.

20/06/2022 The USA Wine Ratings prides itself on working with top-level judges that each have direct buying responsibilities in their roles.

The key individuals in the USA wine industry collectively have the buying power to list wines from all over the world that are entering the competition. Buyers with the experience of assessing wines on their quality, their value for money proposition, and how that is demonstrated through their packaging and design – are the three key judging criteria.

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. 

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

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.

Professional wine tasters judging the wines.

The event is all set to take place in person this July. The final submission deadline is June 30, 2021. Only professional wine tasters are involved in the judging process.

Influential judges

First, its judges are made up of some of the most influential national and regional wine buyers and masters 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. USA Wine rating rates by quality, value, and package - exactly how trade buys and how their consumers purchase.
