The Paris Wine Cup aims to recognize, reward and promote wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker. For any wine brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s wine list - and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.
That is why the Paris Wine Cup is different. It will single out and shine the spotlight on those wine brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers.
To win a Paris Wine Cup award you will need to score highly in all three areas of our judging criteria i.e., Quality, Value for money and Package & Design. You might have an outstanding quality wine, but if the price and packaging are not right, you will not be recognized by the Paris Wine Cup.
There is no point, for example, in having a 95 point wine if it does not look good or offer consumers great value for money. Those points mean it will remain highly respected within the trade, but it will also remain largely unsold on the shelf or languishing on a restaurant’s wine list.
Learn more about the Judging Procedure
Paris Wine Cup will be decided based on the following judging formula:
Q (Quality Score) + Value Score (V) + Package Score (P) = Paris Wine Cup Score.

The Paris Wine Cup will be assessed and judged by a leading panel of top-level wine buyers with current direct commercial buying responsibility. Or wine consultants and experts who are also directly involved in the development of new wine brands or buying wine for commercial resale.
