    DescriptionThe International Wine Challenge is the largest and most prestigious annual wine competition in the world. Each year around 500 wine professionals judge more than 9,000 wines over the two week competition, and a range of medals are awarded (see below). These medals are displayed on winning bottles and the logo's branding allows significant promotion of these wines and the competition, particularly in supermarkets, wine stores, and in restaurants. This book is the only guide to detail the medal-winning wines and where to buy them, with easy-to-follow A-Z listings and an index by price.
