Beverage Testing Institute

The "Beverage Testing Institute" was founded in 1981 in Chicago with the aim of conducting quality evaluations for beer, wine and spirits and publishing them for consumers. Products can be submitted by all producers worldwide. The results are published in renowned magazines such as Wine Enthusiast, Restaurant Hospitality, The New Yorker Magazine, Wine & Spirits, International Wine Review, All About Beer and several others. The Institute's journal "Tastings" is published bi-monthly. President of the BTI is Charles Laverick, who himself tastes over 8,000 wines annually. He is also the author of several books, including "Buying Guide to Inexpensive Wines: More Than 1500 Wines Reviewed by the Beverage Testing Institute".

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
