HARPERS WINE STARS ITALY – TWP’S WINNING WINES!

We are delighted to report that our wines did incredibly well in the recent Harpers Wine Stars Italy competition!

The concept of the competition is interesting, with the overall aim of providing a practical guide to buying across the Italian category, which people will find genuinely useful. 

Harper’s describe their Wine Stars Italy as follows:

“Identifying the regional heroes from across Italy.

Wines judged by buyers, for buyers”

“The results, coupled with an editorial overview of Italy and its D.O.s will provide buyers with a truly comprehensive guide to Italy, trends, the regions they should look to list and

champion, producers they should be working with and recommendations on specific wines….”


Some key points about the competition:

  • Italy is split into nine categories
  • Those wines which progress past the first round, which is tasted blind, are scored both by value for money and packaging
  • This is the only tasting competition which is judged purely by buyers
