Critics & Competitions

We compare the results from wine critics, wine competitions and user recommendations with wines in the supermarkets to help you find the best quality and best value for money wines.

    International Wine Challenge

    The International Wine Challenge is one of the world's top wine competitions. Wines are tasted blind without any knowledge of who produced the wine. This allows the wines to be judged on their own merit, based on how they taste in the glass. They are then ranked as Gold, Silver, Bronze, commended or No Result. We load these results into Find A Vino and sort the wines by value. There are always wines that the Judges find among the thousands of wines they taste, that when we add the wine's price, provide exceptional value for money. The competition releases its results twice a year.

    International Wine and Spirit Competition

    The International Wine and Spirit Competition is one of the world's top wine competitions. Wines are tasted blind without any knowledge of who produced the wine. They are then ranked as Gold Outstanding, Gold, Silver Outstanding, Silver, Bronze or No Result. The competition releases its results twice a year, with the wines from the Northern Hemispehre in the first half of the year and the Southern Hemisphere wines in the second.

    The Drinks Business Global Masters

    The Drinks Business gather some of the top critics to taste the top wines found in the UK. Unlike many awards they judge wines by grape variety, so you know that all top recommended wines are the best examples of that particular grape or style. Tastings are caried out through the year and are ade regularly to Find A Vino.

Retailers

Each day we load the latest prices and availability of the wines and compare them to the critics scores to quickly find the best value wines available in-store or online in the UK. Some of the retailers here are on the high street, some are web-based only and some are a mixture of both.

    Majestic

    Majestic is one of the UK's leading wine merchants with all available wines loaded into Find A Vino, both online and in-store. Each store has their own range but if you want a wine recommended that isn't in stock, they can usually get it for you, if you ask.

    Waitrose Cellar

    Waitrose Groceries is part of the home delivery network and all the wines are available in their bigger stores. If you shop online with Waitrose, use Find A Vino first to choose your wine. Then you can continue on with your grocery shop, confident you have got the best wines already sorted and in your basket.

    Adnams

    Adnams is an eclectic mix of brewer, distiller and wine merchant. All wines from their online site are checked for recommendations. They stock a range of wines in their stores, but if you want a wine recommended on Find A Vino they should be able to get it in for you if you ask.
