Number 2/2018

Spring has sprung and love is all around. Along with plenty of large wine competitions of course. It’s incredible to see such small countries as the Czech Republic and Slovakia, who produce 3 and 2 thousandth worth of the world’s wine production respectively, become major players at the largest and most famous competitions around the world. And it’s fantastic to watch the successes they are reaping!

Josef Valihrach picked up the world champion title at the world’s oldest competition in Lubljana –and for his very new variety of Cabernet Blanc no less! Meanwhile Znovín Znojmo picked up five gold medals out of six registered wines!

With their Pinot Blanc Late Harvest 2015, Vinselekt Michlovský picked up the Grand Prix at the Pinot Blanc championship competition.

Shining as this year’s brightest star are the Ostrožovič family from Slovakia’s Tokaj region picking up the Grand Prix award in the category of Les Vins Blancs de Cépages et d’Assemblages du Monde in Strasburg, Vinalies d´Or for the best sweet wine at the Vinalies Internationales in Paris and the Bacchus d´ Oro award for the best sweet wine at Bacchus in Madrid – all top rated competitions by VinoFed!

Long may this trend continue!
