World-Renowned Judges

Year after year, the FLIWC draws a diverse panel of the highest quality judges from all over the world! Below is just a partial list of judges from around the world that will judge this year's competition.

Each wine is judged on its own merit - its presence, balance and varietal character - not by how it compares to other wines in the flight.

Wines are blind judged in flights, with each wine identified only by a computer-generated code number. Each glass is labeled with this code number and the judges are given a scoring sheet with the number and the type of wine (i.e. Chardonnay). All flights are staged in a separate back room and delivered to the judging room. Re-pours, when necessary, from a second unopened bottle are also staged in the back room.
