All Global Masters are judged blind by the finest palates in the world – a panel of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers only.
The Global Masters marks a distinct change in the way wine is judged. For the first time, preconceived notions of the importance of location are pushed aside, allowing wines from across the globe to be judged purely on style and price.
Each tasting identifies the best examples of its grape variety, from all around the world and from every price bracket, meaning a Bulgarian wine can be tasted alongside a Burgundian without prejudice or bias.
All Masters competition - whether regional or global - are judged blind, and we have been honoured to have some of the finest palates in the world acting as judges: our panels comprise solely of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers.
