In April 2021, Drinks International published The World’s Most Admired Wine Brands 2021.

This is the 11th year in which Drinks International has compiled its definitive guide to The World’s Most Admired Wine Brands. The selected brands were chosen by an academy made up of the world’s leading wine experts, including buyers, sommeliers, wholesalers, bar owners, Masters of Wine, writers and educators from 48 different countries. The list features a vibrant mix of Old World classics, ambitious New World producers and high-volume brands that offer exceptional value for money.

Drinks International editor Martin Green said: “The Most Admired Wine Brands 2021 highlights the most iconic, exciting and innovative producers in the world. To win a place on this prestigious list is a tremendous achievement. There are thousands of wine brands vying for attention around the world, but just 50 elite icons have made the cut. Congratulations to all of the brands featured this year. They have earned the respect of hundreds of wine professionals and experts spread across the globe, and they have now gained the ultimate stamp of quality.”

From the list, four of the wine brands are represented by Stansfeld Scott.

Catena, a family-owned winery in Mendoza with a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest Malbec, finished second, retaining its crown as the Most Admired Wine Brand in South America. Nederburg was one of just two South African wine brands to appear on the list as it featured this year in 34th position. Stansfeld Scott’s latest addition to their Californian portfolio; Beringer Main & Vine and Beringer Founder’s Estate placed no.46 on the list while Santa Rita, the popular wine brand from Chile, also earned a spot on the Top 50 list.

“Strong brands will play a vital role in leading the wine trade to a healthy future as the world emerges from Covid-19 lockdowns. The wineries featured on this list act as regional champions, category signposts and industry leaders, and they have the potential to steer the wine trade into a new Roaring Twenties” as quoted by Drinks International editor Martin Green in the original article.

Stansfeld Scott is proud to represent these brands and congratulates the hard-work and dedication involved in earning a place on the list of The Most Admired Wine Brands in the world.
