Inside The Judging of USA Wine Ratings

All wines entered will be handled by USA Wine Ratings and organized into flights for tasting.

The wines will:

- Initially, be tasted blind to determine its quality and drinkability.

- Where appropriate they will also be assessed by variety, style, region, and country.

- Judges will then determine the value score of the wine based on the quality and its retail price. 
- The judges will then be handed the bottle or format for them to be able to assess, in detail, the design, label, and packaging and determine how well that matches up to, or complements the quality of the wine and its price point. It is how the product is perceived when placed on the wine shelf among thousands of other wines.

- The judges can discuss the wine as a whole to help allocate scores in the three judging areas however each judge will give its independent score and a weighted average will be taken at the end.

- The Gold winning wines and all special category wines are re-tasted by the wine judges on the re-judging day to ensure the scoring quality.
