THE ASSESSMENT

Wines participating at the 5StarWines and WineWithoutWalls will be evaluated by a jury during a three-day blind tasting. Before getting the overall score, wines will be evaluated on their visual, olfactory and gustative aspects. Every aspect gets a partial score that will make up the overall score. The wines scoring 85/100 or more will get tasted twice from the Scientific Committee and the General Chairman, and will then receive an overall score.

At the end of the three days, the wines that have been evaluated at or above the minimum score of 90/100 will be selected and published in the international guide 5StarWines – the Book, publishing will be in both paper and digital format accompanied by a description card.

All the wines sent to 5StarWines will receive feedback on the panel’s assessment of their product via private notice.
