And the winner is… “Selections Mondiales de Vins Canada”.

 

The Sélections Mondiales de Vins Canada is the most prestigious wine award not only in Canada but also in North America. The contest started in 1983 and, today, it is held every year in Quebec. The next edition will take place from May 31st  to  June 5th  at the Hôtel Delta, and the deadline to send in  your wines is April 15th. Producers and importers interested in participating can consult the official website of the contest at: http://www.smvcanada.ca/fr/page/inscription/29

In the last edition, more than 1722 products from 523 vineyards took part in the contest. The participating wines are evaluated by a jury, which gives them a score out of 100. The prize-winning products are classified in three categories:

  1. Grand Gold Medal: at least 92 points.
  2. Gold Medal: at least 85 points.
  3. Silver Medal: at least 82 points.
