Concours Wine Still Red winners: GOLD
Triumphal march on Brno
The 2020 concours mondial took place in the Czech republic. A lesser know wine region, yet with great history.
The splendid city of Brno hosted the estimated event. And Sicilian wine had a lead part in the show. No less then 72 medals come back to Sicily. Among which 2 gran gold medal, 24 gold medals and 46 silver.
An overall success that underlines the growing importance of Sicilian wine making.
Again Nero D’Avola is still a concours favorite. This red wine variety never seems to tire. With 15 golden medals red still dominates.
Noteworthy is the success of grillo among the white wines. More than a surprise that is rather a confirmation. 7 gold medals went to Sicilian whites
What comes as a surprise is the advancing success of organic wine. Sparkling wine continues to confirm its place on the global market.
