Beverage Testing Institute Special Competitions

Since first conducting the Chardonnay Shootout in 1981 The Beverage Testing Institute has offered special competitions, in addition to our standard review services, that rank similar products within their various categories of type, varietal, region, production methods, and more. We are the go-to partner when a group of suppliers, a state, or governing body of a particular AVA or Geographic Indication (GI), such as Valpolicella DOC, request a new review to help with marketing efforts or management of their existing competition. We are privileged to work with the entities below and showcase the entrants of the following competitions.
