The judging

A local jury will be established to judge the applications among the different proposed categories according to:

  • the quality of services and facilities offered
  • the quality and original features of tourism offer
  • the customer service
  • the degree of commitment to developing global wine tourism.

The international jury will be composed of 10 members, one representative of each Network member city.

On the occasion of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network AGM in Santiago, Chile, the International Jury will meet and each representative of the cities will introduce its finalists. The International Jury will deliberate and select one winner per city, all categories taken into consideration. On the international level each city will receive an award among its own category finalists.
