Why take part ?
An extremely stringent judging process
The panel consists of carefully selected experts from all over the world. Their task is to award medals to the best entries.
The Vranec Selection jury is dedicated to the industry and is made up of professionals who specialize in wine throughout the year. These include buyers, international shippers, researchers, winemakers, journalists, trade critics, and representatives of trade and marketing organizations.
Representatives from 20 countries ensure the unique diversity of the Vranec Selection jury and set it apart from other competitions.
30 years of expertise
The competition is managed by communications agency Vinopres with a more than 30 years’ expertise in wine, spirits and beer competitions (Spirits Selection, Concours Mondial du Sauvignon, Brussels Beer Challenge)
A team of specialists
Checks arrivals of wine entries and the official accompanying documents, corrects any possible errors and turns down samples that do not comply with the rules.
Optimal tasting conditions
The organizers guarantee optimal tasting conditions for the judges. The judging panels are seated in a properly aired, well-lit and quiet hall where entry is prohibited to anybody not directly involved in the tasting sessions.
Diversity of the judges
The organizers are mindful to ensure there are judges of different geographical backgrounds in each panel.
Samples are stored in the preparation hall out of the judges’ sight. Judges never see the bottles. Anonymity is a fundamental principle of the competition.
An international promotional tool
Marketing and communications resources are provided for Vranec Selection winners, including a full description of your wine(s).
By touring to a different country every year, visibility is enhanced both for the competition and medal-winning wines. The choice of host country does not occur on a random basis: the organizers target growth markets, both for production and consumption of wine.
