Paris Wine Cup Postponed Over COVID-19- New Date June 29, 2020

Paris Wine Cup which was set to happen on March 17 has been postponed to June 29, 2020.

March 15, 2020 – Paris, France.

Beverage Trade Network, the organizer of Paris Wine Cup said safety of our judges and our staff was top priority and it was best we delayed the competition to June this year. The winners of the 2020 competition will now be announced on July 10, 2020.

“Whilst following government advice and what’s happening in France and especially the pace of new state protocols coming up, we spent the last couple of weeks speaking with partners to assess the impact the outbreak would have on our event and what measures we could put in place in order to mitigate risks and deliver a safe, successful event for all,” Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network said.

We truly understand that our entrants who submitted their wines were excited to see the results on April 30, however due to the coronavirus situation and keeping in mind the safety of our judges, we decided it was best to postpone the event and do it on 29 June 2020.

The Paris Wine Cup aims to recognize, reward and promote French wine brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific wine drinker.
