VinScore ratings add selling power
VinScore ratings can make your wine offer listing more appealing to buyers, as it provides an independent and credible filter to help buyers compare wines of interest. Sellers are not obligated to obtain a VinScore Rating, but results have been shown that listings displaying a VinScore are 300% more likely to achieve a confirmed sale than those without this independent qualifying report.
When ready to list and promote your wines, purchase a VinScore independent and credible assessment report when adding your listing. Your VinScore evaluation and rating will take between 3-5 days from the time VINEX receives your wine sample.
VinScore ratings are only available for table wines that are in Finished/Bottle Ready condition (fined, filtered and fault-free). They do not need to be cold stable.
VinScore ratings are not applied to unfinished wines or other grape-derived products.
When listing your wine you will need to indicate its quality within one of the 5 quality category levels. This indication is your own assessment and will not be changed by VINEX.
|A||Luxury Quality Level|
|B||Premium Quality Level|
|C||Reserve Quality Level|
|D||Commercial Quality Level|
|E||Generic/Other (including Must, Juice, Concentrate, Spirit, Tannin, etc)|
Based on your wine's nominated quality level, it is then appraised against the following five criteria, and given points totalling a maximum of 50.
|Colour||(max 3 points)|
|Aroma||(max 7 points)|
|Palate||(max 20 points)|
|Finish||(max 5 points)|
|Typicity/Structure||(max 15 points)|
The total appraisal score out of 50 is expressed in units, eg. 41/50 is a 4.1 VinScore Rating. The highest score of 5.0 represents an exceptional wine within its designated A-E quality level.
To request a VinScore, enter the Exchange and select +Add Listing then enter the wine's details and dispatch a sample for an independent assessment.
If you don't agree with the VinScore evaluation and would like to challenge it, VINEX will obtain a second qualified opinion at no additional cost to you. You are not obligated to display a VinScore rating.
