Judges are selected for their expertise in wine and spirits, including educators, writers, sommeliers, and bartenders. The identities of the judges will be revealed after the winners are announced. As noted, all judging will be double-blind tastings so neither the pourer nor the judges know what is being tasted.
An award from Santé Magazine is a badge of honor. It is recognition from judges who are your professional peers. In addition, you will gain exposure to over 200,000 restaurant professionals. All entrants receive feedback and notes from our judges, providing valuable insider information on how your products compare in the marketplace. Finally, your badge can be used to promote your brand if you win. Your brand will also be displayed in Santé Magazine.
