Our mission is to encourage producers to raise the quality bar continually through year on year feedback on their wines; and to guide wine lovers towards the best champagnes and sparkling wines on the planet.

Tom Stevenson.

The CSWWC not only gives us critical review of our own wine styles but a great overview of premium sparkling wine  styles and trends from around the globe. This competition creates a ‘level playing field’ to compare and contrast the world’s best sparkling wines.”    Ed Carr, Group sparkling wine maker Accolade Wines
