The result of the assessment, completed on 4 and 5 of April, was announced on Friday on the homepage of the competition: Hungarian wines won 18 gold, 18 silver and 13 bronze medals.

Cellars from the region of Szekszárd won five gold medals, four medals were awarded to Eger, three for Villány-Siklós, two for Tokaj-hegyalja and one-one for Etyek-Buda, Pannonhalma, Nagy-Somló and Balatonboglár regions.

Three of the silver medal wines and five of the bronze medal wines were cheaper than Euro 5.
