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.
Welcome to the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships.
The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC) is the only international sparkling wine competition judged by sparkling wine specialists, for the new generation of sparkling wine consumers who enjoy sparkling wine on any occasion.
The CSWWC endorses provenance and promotes world-class sparkling wines of every region as gastronomic wines par excellence. The competition is now in its 6th year and continues to grow in numbers and stature. It is the largest and toughest sparkling wine competition in the world.
Everyone at the CSWWC hopes that you and your loved ones are safe and well in these difficult times, and that you remain safe and well. If any of you or your loved ones are infected with COVID-19, we hope they have a speedy recovery.
We send our very best wishes to you, your family, your employees, your neighbours, and everyone else throughout your community. During these harrowing times we need to help and care for each other.
Although the CSWWC will go ahead this year, recent restrictions (quite rightly) imposed by the government make it logistically impossible for us to maintain a May/June judging schedule and it will be equally impossible for many of you to ship your wines to us in time. Tom has therefore made the decision to postpone the judging. Once that decision had been made, he looked at how long other events had been postponed and came to the conclusion that some of the proposed new dates were overly optimistic. He therefore worked backwards from the Awards Dinner to ascertain the very latest date the CSWWC could be postponed to, which is as follows:
2020 KEY DATES UPDATE:
- 11th September (Deadline for all 2020 entries)
- 25th September (Deadline for samples to be delivered to Sensible Wine Services
- 26th October – 6th November (Judging takes place)
- November (Medal Results announced)
- 15th December (CSWWC Awards Dinner)
“Perrier-Jouët cuvées are regularly awarded at the CSWWC. This renowned international competition serves not only to recognise the quality of our champagnes, but as a gauge of excellence itself as it brings together the most notable names in the world of wine.” Herve Deschamps, Chef de Caves – Cellar Master Perrier-Jouët
“This competition is a great promotional support for our international expansion, last year’s recognition of winning Best CAVA producer boosted our sales significantly!!” Romain Poussielgues, MASET
“Success at the CSWWC marks our wine(s) as stellar performers in the overcrowded world of champagne and sparkling wine(s). It differentiates our wine(s) as being consistent and of the highest quality. An award at this competition is a real feather in our cap!” Jane Hunter, MD Hunter Wines
“Entering CSWWC allows us not just to benchmark our wines against the most exciting producers world-wide each year but also to benchmark our results vintage by vintage over time. We value the consistency and professionalism of the judges and love their deep knowledge and passion. Awards from CSWWC resonate widely. It’s not just a competition, its a reputation-builder and an education.” Monica Fox, Fox & Fox
“Our motto has always been: ‘make the best wine you can, test it in competition, and then tell people’. We have entered CSWWC every year and the feedback and publicity have been outstanding. The awards night is a great night out too” Bob Lindo Camel Valley
