Program recognizes the best club wine programs on an annual basis.
The Club Managers Association of America’s International Wine Society announced the winners for the 2010 Wine Program Awards at its Annual Business Meeting held at the CMAA World Conference and Club Business Expo in February in Orlando, Fla.
The objective of the Wine Program Awards is to recognize the best club wine programs on an annual basis and to laud CMAA member-managed clubs that establish and maintain fine wine programs for their membership. These awards are meant to be a hallmark of quality and assurance of an eminent wine program.
Awards are given in the categories of distinction and merit. On the 100 point scale, an Award of Distinction is achieved when a club scores a 90 or above and an Award of Merit is achieved when a club scores between 80 and 89.
