Mondial des Pinots 2016 results

The Mondial des Pinots 2016 awards reflect the excellent quality of wines made from Pinot Noir and other Pinot grapes. The competition, which is for wines made only from grapes in the Pinot family, offers a good indication of how well these grow in greatly different regions around the world. In Switzerland, canton Graubünden and other cantons in German-speaking areas put in a particularly good showing. Two wines from canton Valais obtained the highest distinction, the Grand Or medal. Grand Or, gold medals and several special prizes will be handed out during the ceremony that takes place 2 September 2016 in Sierre, which serves as a prelude to the opening of the VINEA Swiss Wine Fair.
