You’ll also learn details about the 3 West Club, the beautiful and historic venue that plays host to the New York International Wine Competition each year. “The building is historic, and all of the historical details are intact. The beautiful chandeliers really shine and reflect all of the natural light in the space,” according to a 3 West Club spokesperson.

“Every wine buyer has a simple decision to make, and that’s ‘buy’ or ‘don’t buy,’ and that’s what this competition is all about, says judge Francis Schott. Francis is the owner of Stage Left, one of New York City’s premier restaurants.

All of the judges at this year’s event were buyers for New York City restaurants, retail locations, distributors, and importers, who judged the wines by their category and by their actual price. The NYIWC is proud to be part of the International Beverage Competition Group, the only beverage competitions judged exclusively by trade buyers.
