Jurors’ expertise

Tasters are the cornerstone of the Competition. Each sample is blind-tasted by an international jury composed only of women–all experts–and marked on the basis of the sensorial analysis criteria defined by the OIV (International organisation of vine and wine).

Certified competition

The competition is recognised by the Rhineland Palatinate Ministry of Agriculture and ISO 9001-certified. Certification is a guarantee - for both producers and consumers - of rigorous selection.

Organoleptic analysis

After the tasting, you receive a complete organoleptic analysis of your sample (appearance, aroma, taste, harmony) along with competition averages, to evaluate your sample’s position with regard to competitors.

Active communication

The competition uses its extensive network to communicate results directly to the main decision-makers: buyers, sommeliers, restaurant owners, importers, journalists for the specialised press.

Marketing tools

Many tools are made available to you: Metal plates to hang up at your site, medals to affix to your products, award certificates to send to clients, award-winners on the competition’s website (to increase your internet visibility), the competition’s social networks, etc.

Media partner

The organising company, ARMONIA, has relied on well-known media sources since its creation. Each year, articles in the general and specialised press spread the competition’s renown and make it better known to the general public and buyers and importers as well:Lebensmittel Zeitung, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, VINUM, Wein-Plus, WEIN + MARKT, etc.
