These five resources contain everything you need to start using the common language for wine and spirits.

1. Understand LWIN

Our short guide to LWIN shows you what LWIN is, how it works, and how you can use it in your business – for free.

If you’d like to explore the idea of using LWIN, it’s the best place to start.

2. Get our guide to implementation

The implementation guide is like a manual for using LWIN. It tells you everything you need to do to bring LWIN into your system, step by step. 

3. Match your list to LWIN in minutes

Adding LWINs to your set of wines is fast and easy with Wine Matcher. It’s an online tool that reads and standardises Excel lists automatically.

You can access it free for one month, which is plenty of time to match even the longest lists. 

4. Download the dictionary

The LWIN dictionary is an Excel file that lists all wines that have an LWIN. Here, you can find LWIN numbers plus detailed information about the origin, classification, colour and producer of each wine. 

5. Connect & automate (optional)

Once you have LWIN in your system, automation is much easier. Not only can you keep in sync with LWIN automatically, but you can also take advantage of opportunities to price, source and sell wine instantly. It’s helping merchants to grow their sales exponentially. 

“Liv-ex has made a significant contribution to the world of fine wine by championing its LWIN unique identifiers for fine wines.”
