Signing & General
Information

The following rules determine the participation of wines.

WHICH WINES ARE ACCEPTED

  1. The wine participants are registered online using the available link, and the wines are bought from the market. We want to replicate the consumer’s experience in terms of what he obtains by choosing from central retail points that meet strict criteria of correct preservation and storage of wines, with controlled temperature and humidity. This is radical and almost inconceivable (for reasons of management), but protecting the blind tastings from impeachment is a one-way street for us. Wine buying points are not announced to safeguard from instances of impeachment. Only in special – and extremely rare – conditions are the organisers given the possibility to make provisions so that a particular wine secures its participation in the competition section, e.g. in the case of incorrect vintage shipping or another similar case.
  2. Only bottled wines produced/vinified in Greece or Cyprus, with over 500 bottles on the market, have the right to enter 50 GGW. Participation of older vintages that are not commercially available will not be accepted. For low-intervention wines, the requested documents include a technical analysis by a wine laboratory, the organic grapes certification and a written statement by the producers that no additives are used.
  3. The organising committee reserves the right to reject the participation of a wine at any stage of the process if entry criteria as defined above are not met and to ask participants for any supplementary document considered necessary to substantiate participating wines.
  4. Only the winners and the total number of wineries and wines that participated are announced.
  5. For transparency reasons and the fact that the wines are bought from the market, producers are entitled to change the vintage or the label of the wine they entered only within 15 days of signing up on the registration platform.

WINNER OBLIGATIONS

  1. For all the awarded wines, wineries need to reserve a minimum of 30 bottles of each wine-winner for promotional actions and events that will follow.
  2. 50 GGW is entitled to photograph, produce or reproduce images of the participating wines on its site or in directories, posters that will be created, or use these on printed material associated with the project itself.
  3. Since all the labels participating in the 50 GGW are sourced from the market, as stated above, it is considered that they fully comply with the conditions of bottling and marketing wines as these are specified by EU Regulations a) No. 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council of 17 December 2013, b) Commission regulation (EC) No 607/2009 of 14 July 2009 laying down specific detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 479/2008 as regards protected designations of origin and geographical indications, traditional terms, labelling and presentation of certain wine sector products (EU L193) and c) Regulation (EU) No 251/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the definition, description, presentation, labelling and the protection of geographical indications of aromatised wine products and repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 1601/91 of the Council (EE L84).

WINNER BENEFITS

  1. All the wines included in the 50 GGW list will have the following benefits: – They will be included in a two-page report in the 50 GGW Digital Book that is free to download from our website and receives about 5000 clicks a year.
    – They will be promoted throughout the year through our Social Media on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
    – They will be included in the 50 GGW collaboration with restaurants both within Greece and overseas.
    – OPTIONALLY, they can participate in promotion actions abroad. Participation costs will be determined with each action.
  2. All wines awarded for three consecutive years, regardless of vintage (can be the same or different), because of the stability shown and continuous pursuit of Greatness, we are creating the rank 50 GGW | Next Level with the following privileges:
    – Award of a special prize/trophy.
    – Additional two-page separate interview of the producer in the Digital Book.
    – Priority participation in masterclasses.
    – Separate promotion on the greatgreekwines.com website
  3. Formation of Greek Wine Lab, an instrument of planning and implementation of comprehensive creative proposals and solutions for coverage of the extroversion needs of all participations in 50GGW (regardless of whether these are on The List), both for the Greek and Cypriot markets, but also for the international markets.

FOR ALL THE WINES THAT DON’T MAKE IT INTO THE 50 GGW LIST

  1. The wines are not announced and remain confidential. 50 GGW only announces the winners. We understand that many people might want to know which wineries and wines entered the competition, but sharing this information is not part of the 50 GGW philosophy.
  2. Participations will receive edited feedback tailor-made for each label, taken from the judges’ notes and not just tasting notes.
