With the Meininger wine test (MW), the publishing house provides important orientation for the market which is also highly relevant for the end consumers and, at the same time, promotes fair competition amongst winemakers. Meininger’s wine test provides the framework for the evaluation and recognition of wines and also allows for the distinction of the evaluations achieved on the labels.
The aim of the wine test is to promote wine quality and boost the sales of the wines and sparkling wines entered. A panel of judges delivers an independent, neutral and expert verdict on the wines, thereby guaranteeing that the
wine test is carried out earnestly and professionally.
