Selection Mondiale des Vins Canada is an international wine championship held each year in the Quebec province of eastern Canada.
In 2012, there were more than 1800 wines entered into the competition, from almost 600 producers around the world. More than 35 wine-producing nations were represented, from Lebanon to Languedoc and Napa to Niagara. The medal-winning wines came from an even spread of categories, including sweet, still, sparkling, whites, reds and rosés.
The medals given to noteworthy wines are Grand Gold (92+ points), Gold (85+ points) and Silver (82+ points). To retain the competition's integrity, and the value of the medals, a limit is imposed on the number of medals awarded each year. This is set to 30% of the wines entered.
