Entries close soon for Champagne and sparkling wine comp

With less than three weeks to go until the deadline of 10th April, entries are pouring in for the 2015 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC).

With over 650 entries in its first year, including some of the most iconic fizz in the world, the CSWWC is already being heralded the ‘Oscars’ of all things bubbly.

Producers from over 15 different countries have registered their wines for this year’s competition, representing both traditional and New World sparkling wine regions across the globe.

Established in 2014 by Tom Stevenson, Champagne and sparkling wine journalist and author of Champagne, the competition aims to provide the trade and consumers with the definitive guide to the best sparkling wines and champagnes on the planet.

“This year we’re focusing on attracting more entries outside of the traditional sparkling wine regions,” Stevenson said.

As the only international wine competition where every judge will evaluate all wines, CSWWC have recruited Essi Avellan MW, editor of FINE Champagne and Dr Tony Jordan, international wine consultant, to sit along Stevenson on the tasting panel.

“The success of the 2014 competition and overwhelming positive feedback from the industry confirms my belief that a gold medal in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships is the most prestigious award in the sparkling wine industry. I have high hopes for 2015,” Stevenson said.

Full details about the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships and how to enter are available from www.champagnesparklingwwc.co.uk. Entries cost £135 (A$256) +VAT per wine and producers are responsible for the full shipping costs of any samples.
