WineAlign 2014 World Wine Awards of Canada (WWAC)



The annual WineAlign World Wine Awards of Canada (WWAC) gathers  the country’s leading wine writers and judges  to evaluate wines under $50 that are sold somewhere in Canada in the year of the competition.  Entries are judged in flights along with similar varietal wines in three price categories:

Under $15

$15 to $25

Over $25

In 2014, the judging will take place in Toronto from August 18 to 22.

Last year we instituted the first full integration of the results into the WineAlign website, in effect creating a lasting virtual medal for all winning participants.  Like last year, the plan in 2014 is post all award wine notes on WineAlign and to share the winning results in a major print publication.

Combined with the reach of WineAlign, and our full expansion into Quebec, the potential audience size for the results will far exceed two million.

In addition, starting with our 2014 awards all wines entered will not only be posted on WineAlign with bottle images, but reviews will be included as well (many in both French and English).

Please use the menu at the top of this page to navigate the site and to find out more information about these awards.  Click on Rules for Entry to find out the cost of entering and the number of samples required and click on Shipping for the shipping address, dates, and times.

Important Information for Shipping Wine from outside of Canada

Sending wine from a non-Canadian source may result in untimely delays; please factor this in when arranging your wine shipment to ensure that your product arrives in time for judging. Delivery of wine from outside of Canada should be shipped with the assistance of an Ontario agent. This agent will be able to complete import procedures, and the wine will be delivered to the WWAC.

Winery representatives who do not have an Ontario agent must consult their agent elsewhere in Canada regarding how best to deliver their wine. As we are unable to assist with the shipment of wine, all wines entered from outside of Canada require the assistance of a Canadian agent.
