Lebanese wine Domaine des Tourelles’ 2014 Red was crowned Great Value Champion Red wine, at International Wine Challenge (IWC) Awards held in July in London.

Having already been awarded a Gold Medal, the wine was eligible to be re-tasted for the Trophy selection, where it was awarded the Lebanese red Trophy.

The wine also received a Great Value Award, which are given to wines that have won either a Gold or Silver medal and met exceptionally strict availability and pricing criteria.

Of the Great Value Awards, the IWC judges selected six winners as Champion Great Value Wines, each offering a world-class wine for world-class value. Co-owner and winemaker Faouzi Issa received the Great Value Champion Red Trophy from Co-Chair Tim Atkin MW at the glittering awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane.

Each winning wine has excelled against extremely tough competition; thousands of wines from some 55 countries were blind-tasted this year by panels of expert judges, including many Masters of Wine.
