Where there is more than one review and rating for a wine, members with a trade membership may quote whichever one they wish, provided there is a clear attribution to The Real Review, the wine writer's name and the date of tasting.

Bottle stickers may only be purchased in accordance with our most current view of the wine.


A wine is awarded a Gold Ribbon and Top Value in 2018.

The producer, distributor or retailer of the wine with a Trade Licence, may purchase Gold Ribbon and Top Value bottle stickers in 2018.

It is re-tasted in 2019 and subsequently receives a Silver Ribbon and no longer is Top Value due to a price increase. Now, the trade member may only purchase Silver Ribbon bottle stickers.
