”Piwi Wine Award “ is the largest European competition of wines made of resistant grape varieties. A Hungarian wine – a white one made of the Solaris variety featuring the label of “Gyukli Pince” from Balatonfüred – entered to this content first time ever.
235 wines produced by 111 winemakers from 11 European countries were entered to this event. Assessment was completed in South Tirol, based on a 100 point PAR system developed for this specific competition.
Only international, professional judges were included in the panel. Three kinds of awards, Silver, Gold, Grand Gold, were granted to wines represented the philosophy of chemical-free production.
The wine produced from the chemical-free soil of the Vörösmál-hills in Balatonfüred with uncompromising work impressed the panel very much: their unanimous decision resulted in a Grand Gold award.
The award will be presented in the summer of 2015 in Mainz, at the annual conference of the OIV International Grape and Wine Organization.
