How we defined categories

  • Exhibited wines are categorized and tasted during the event. The categories are based on the country of origin, style, grape variety, and region. The KWC Administration further categorizes them into young and aged wines or by maturation method depending on the exhibit situation.
  • When filling out the entry form, choosing the correct category for your wine is crucial to ensure that it is grouped correctly and evaluated based on its unique characteristics.
  • In response to the 2022 entry status, we added some new wine production regions to be further divided this year. In 2022, we introduced the natural wine category, and in 2023, we added orange wine as a new category. The categories may change again next year based on the entries received this year.
