Planet Bordeaux wines are divided into categories by color, AOC, vintage and price ranges of 0-$15 and $15 and over. There are also wines that compete in the category of wines made with organically grown grapes.

For 76 years, the Los Angeles International Wine Competition, named by USA Today as “one of the Top Five wine competitions in the United States,” has showcased the finest domestic and international wines. Judges taste blind, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism that has remained the competition’s foundation for 76 years.
