I was looking up a wine and found out that one of my favorites received a Gold medal. I felt validated because that meant I wasn't crazy (all of my friends disliked it while I fell in love), so I thought that meant it was in the top tier of quality. But as I kept scrolling I found one that had received a Double Gold medal and it brought me much confusion. I didn't know there was a ranking above gold?!? And I've definitely never heard that term before.
I thought that if there was, it would be called something similar to platinum (like records in the music industry), but apparently not.
So what is a Double Gold medal? What makes it better than a normal Gold medal?
Here is where I came across it.
