27º CATAD’OR WORLD WINE AWARDS

Catad’Or World Wine Awards is the most important international wine competition in Latin America. With 27 years of experience, the competition has been held since 1995 in the city of Santiago, the capital of Chile, the fourth largest wine exporter in the world.

Catad’Or World Wine Awards has the high patronage of the International Organization of Vineyard and Wine (OIV), the International Union of Oenologist, Asociación de Ingenieros Agrónomos Enólogos de Chile (ANIAE), and is member of VINOFED.

Catad’Or World Wine Awards evaluates and rewards the excellence of wines and spirits with rigor and professionalism. Benefiting from the well-known reputation of the competition, the award-winning wines and products travel the world and are highly valued by distribution channels and consumers, especially in priority wine markets such as China and Brazil. In its 2022 version, Catad’Or World Wine Awards will evaluate and reward samples of still and sparkling wines from around the world, and will feature the second edition of the Catad’Or World Spirits Awards to evaluate and reward spirits.
