Born Digital Wine Awards 2018

Winners released

Born Digital Wine Awards, is the only international wine awards that assess entries from various different languages across a range of categories, and the winners are out today!

New sponsor, new categories – it was all change for the 2018 edition of these awards (that I so love coordinating!) and the result was something that really appealed to people who are creating great content around the world.

This year we attracted more and more writer, photographers and videographers that had never entered the competition and the quality of the work was outstanding. Need to be convinced?
