Who is shortlisted for the 2022 IWSC Wine Producer Trophies?

The International Wine & Spirits Competion (IWSC) has announced the shortlist for its coveted Wine Producer Trophies.

Each year, the producers who perform the best in IWSC’s wine awards are shortlisted for these trophies.

The IWSC’s producer trophies are its most prestigious award and the shortlist comes from thousands of producers who enter the awards each year.

Two New Zealand wineries have been shortlisted this year – Church Road Winery and te Pā Wines.

“We’re passionate about our red wines at Church Road, and are so excited to have been shortlisted for the Red Wine Producer of the Year Trophy by IWSC!” said Church Road in a Facebook post.

“What an honour to be considered for this title. Best of luck to all the nominees.”

For the first time, the IWSC is asking shortlisted producers to complete a short questionnaire for its Judging Committee to have more of a behind-the-scenes understanding of the advancements being made at the wineries and in the vineyards.

Based on the feedback from the questionnaire, in combination with the medal results, the Judging Committee will agree on a winner which will be announced on Thursday, 29 September at the IWSC’s 2022 Awards Dinner & Industry Celebration.

Each trophy winner will then be put forward for our 2022 Outstanding Wine Producer Trophy.
