International Wine Challenge

I see that the results of the International Wine Challenge for 2007 have been announced. I must see if I can find some of the wines locally. Depressingly enough, the search facility on the IWC web site assures me that just three of the nearly 3,000 wines that won a commendation are available here in The Netherlands. I suspect (and hope) that that is an error on the web site…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Remarkably, there appear to be 28 medals going to wines from England; all this warmer weather has at least some compensation.

    The poor old Netherlands didn’t even get a single commendation this year. There are a growing number of vineyards springing up in our area. Hopefully they’ll get on the map in the years to come.
