For fortified wines, please indicate type and flavor of spirits used. Bottles and shipping containers will not be returned.

  • D = Dry (0-1%, or ≤ 10 g/L sugar)
  • SS = Semi-Sweet (1.1% to 4.0%, or 11-40 g/L sugar)
  • SW = Sweet (>4%, or >40 g/L sugar)
  • Note: for any wine >4% sugar, enter it as a Dessert White or Dessert Red
  • Residual sugar and oak information is important, as it will directly influence the placement of your entry in the category
