International Wine Challenge: No Tolerance.  Add/Read Comments

Snooth Wine Search:


Received a press release the other day that stated that the forthcoming International Wine Challenge has introduced a 'no tolerance' approach to false entries. This years competition will have the trophy winning wines subjected to a series of a twice yearly follow-up test. They hope to ensure that the sample entered for the IWC actualy represents the product on the shelves. This testing will use organoleptic and chemical analysis to unmask any wrong doing. Wrong doing here indicating fraud of course. Does this suggest that previous challenges suffered from such practices?
