About Us

The 16th Annual Denver International Wine Competition (DIWC), will be held on June 13 -14, 2020 at The Omni Interlocken Resort, Broomfield, Colorado. This competition is the largest double-blind, professionally judged wine competition in the Rocky Mountain region. It is the only Internationally focused wine competition that conducts a special post competition event showcasing its Gold medal wines. That exclusive wine & culinary pairing event is called Pairsine, Chefs Fine Food & Wine Pairing Competition. It will be held in November 2020 at the Denver International Wine Festival at the new Denver Marriot, Broomfield. 10 highly acclaimed Colorado Chefs will create 20 culinary pairings to match with 20 gold medal wines. All gold medal wines are showcased at the event, which will benefit There With Care.

We cordially invite all wineries, importers, and distributors to submit their wines!

The Denver International Wine Competition is designed to give added exposure to your wines, just in time for the holiday season. All winning entries are recognized on the competition website and receive a handsome award medal suitable for hanging on the bottle for display. Award graphics and medal art are provided to winners

The DIWC is organized by Wine Country Network, Inc, the publishers of Wine Country International® magazine. We organize the DIWC and select a prestigious panel of Colorado wine professionals consisting of Master Sommelier's, Wine Directors, F&B Directors, Wine Journalists, and Retailers. Our goal is to create a well-rounded panel of experts that taste wines “double-blind” and achieve the fairest scoring results possible. For our popular varietal categories, we separate wines in as many as 6 different price points to keep the judging results fair.

Medal-winning wines will be posted on this website within 72 hours of the competition. Posted winners will remain listed in the results section of this website under the year that their wine won a medal. Wine Country Network conducts an aggressive publicity campaign generating valuable media exposure for all winners.

We cordially invite your participation!
