International Organic Wine Award 2015

6th international organic wine award 2015

For the sixth time, the international wine competition has been taken place under the guidance of sensory experts and PAR system developer Martin Darting.

The transparent and easily comprehensible wine evaluation method according to the PAR-system takes the overall sensorial effect in consideration and therewith distinguishes the organic wines and wines of fungal disease resistant grape variety (PIWI).
The international award for organic wines has become one of the most important tastings in the wine sector. In the year 2014 184 wineries and distributors out of 19 countries with 729 organic wines have taken part – a record attendance.

A highly professional taster jury and the incorruptible PAR-system enable an objective and therefore generally accepted and recognized evaluation procedure. The results serve the wine makers as well as the consumers as an orientation basis.

Especially the wine makers appreciate this unique chance to compare one’s own performance standard internationally and to upgrade the own production by eventually receiving a prestigious evaluation result.

Международен Винен конкурс Sauvignon 2015


The sixth Concours Mondial du Sauvignon took place on May 22 and 23 2015 in Friuli Venezia Giulia, a major producer of Sauvignon wines. The contest aims to promote wines made from the varietal by increasing awareness of the comprehensive range of Sauvignon blanc wines worldwide and providing a cue for consumers at point of sale.
The organisers of the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon have set up a steering committee comprising seven members of the wine industry whose aim is to build up an information database providing dedicated literature for the industry and consumers. Despite its international ubiquity, Sauvignon blanc undoubtedly has yet to reveal many of its qualities and idiosyncrasies.
