The award winning Vivino returns to sponsor the IWSC (International Wine and Spirit Competition) Winery Innovation Award for the second year running, following a successful brand partnership in 2018, which was also brokered by Reg & Co as part of their commercial partnership services.

Awarding excellence in wines and spirits worldwide has been the aim of the IWSC since its inception 50 years ago. Entries are received from nearly 90 countries worldwide and each sample is judged according to its class and treated with the same care and consideration in the IWSC’s dedicated tasting premises. With over 400 global experts judging products for seven months of the year, the IWSC is proud to set the benchmark for quality.
Alongside the Awards Banquet – known colloquially as the ‘Wine Oscars’ – the IWSC showcases the winning wines at hundreds of events including international terade shows and consumer tastings.
The annual Awards Banquet is held at the Guildhall in London each November and plays host to over 600 industry
professionals. Sponsors play an essential role in the success of the IWSC, and it’s ability to promote, celebrate and support the medal and trophy winners throughout the year.
Reg & Co. has been supporting the IWSC with rightsholder services, helping them to identify and secure award sponsors who will further their cause.
