Events

Presentation and tasting of award-winning Pinot wines after the awards ceremony.

«It’s the only competition devoted solely to the Pinot wines of the world. We are able to get a precise idea of the level of quality of the wines made from this grape, on an international scale. All of the ingredients you need for a quality competition are here: the OIV procedure, competent judges and the quality of the wines. I was particularly taken with the Gran Maestro category over which I presided.»

«Globalisation and standardisation do not support the expression of terroir, so competitions give producers a way to gain recognition for the quality of their wines. The Vinofed prize that we won in 2015 is a guarantee for our clients, and a springboard for our sales efforts. The notoriety, rigour and precision upheld by VINOFED are additional sales arguments which we can use in our promotional efforts.»

    «For us, taking part in competitions is complementary to journalists’ reviews. It’s beneficial for our wines to be judged blind by a panel of tasters from different backgrounds. The media coverage that Mondial des Pinots achieves helps to put our domaine in the spotlight, in return for a minimal investment.»
