The San Diego International brings together one of the most experienced teams of wine & spirits operators in the business. Executive Director Robert Whitley has been managing competitions more than 20 years. Competition Director Rich Cook has been on the team nearly the same length of time, and Chief Judge Michael Franz is returning for his 11th year in that role.

Our guiding philosophy is to give every entry a fair evaluation. Judges are selected for their expertise and objectivity. They are seated on panels of three and all wines and spirits are tasted blind. Each entry rises or falls on its merits.

In the run-up to the competition our team checks and double-checks each entry to ensure all of the label information is correct and has been properly recorded. Each entry is assigned a unique number that follows it throughout the competition. This guarantees accuracy and integrity when the results are announced.

Each judge's votes are audited and verified before results are posted, usually within 48 hours following completion of the competition.

Additional accolades in the form of Director's Awards will be announced in the week following the competition.

We are proud of what we do here and the professionalism of our team, from our judges to the dedicated men and women behind the scenes who make it all work. This year's San Diego International will be staged at the beautiful Westin San Diego.

We are now accepting entries!!
