IRISH WINE SHOW STAR AWARDS 2016-2017

The Irish Wine Show “Star Awards” 2016-2017 Collection is a selection of wines especially chosen by wine experts in the National Off-Licence Association and independent wine writers and is supported by a suite of POS available exclusively to off-licences which are members of the Association.

In excess of 600 wines were submitted to the Star Award adjudication panel.  Points were awarded on the basis of appearance, smell, taste and value for money criteria and the top three wines were selected as the best wines, from the key suppliers and awarded either a Gold, Silver or Bronze Star.
