The Electronic Wine System (ELWIS) is an original computerized system developed by the National Wine Centre of the Czech Republic for simplifying the process of registering wines for competitions and for recording the results of the subsequent judging. It was first launched in 2009, and since then has been continually refined and developed, and has now been used in dozens of national and international wine competitions. It consists of two parts:
The complete system consists of the original software, servers, wireless networks and a tablets for each of the wine judges to use, up to a maximum of 50. It uses the hundred-point system approved by the International Enologists Union, based on the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) resolution for wine evaluation (2009). ELWIS imports data about the wines and the applicants from the original on-line application, organizes the wines into groups and lists the wines in order of tasting, records the results of the judging and then finally prepares a summary of the results ready for printing. An optional feature is the creation of a detailed profile for each wine using the scores given for aroma, strength and intensity scores given for aroma and flavour characteristics.
The two halves of ELWIS are interlinked, but can also be used independently if required.
People or organizations wishing to use this system for their own wine competitions should contact the owners directly:
