Quality competition for 23 wine-growing countries: PAR® Wine Award International starts into its third round.

PAR® tasting on the 23rd and 24th of February 2018; Registration deadline is the 12th of February 2018

Frasdorf, December 2017 – After the recent presentation of the 2017 results, WINE System AG gives notice of the date for the PAR Wine Award International 2018. In response to many requests, the appointment for the sequel has been changed from November to February. The reason for this adjustment is that many producers would have undoubtedly liked to participate in the 2017 event with their 2016 vintages, but they failed to submit their produce due to the late bottling time. The registration for the PAR Wine Award International 2018 has officially started. The registration deadline is the 12th of February. Those who are smart to hurry up with the application will take benefit from the 30% Early-Bird-Discount that is valid until the 22nd of January 2018. The quality contest, hosted by WINE System AG, known for the successful cross-border awards like, for instance, the international organic wine award, welcomes 23 wine-growing countries covering the area which spreads from Poland to Georgia, Armenia and Israel, crossing Hungary, Macedonia and Greece. The tasting will take place under the guidance of Martin Darting on the 23rd and 24th of February 2018. The awarding ceremony followed by conducted dègustation of a selection of the medalists will take place on the 18th of March at ProWein 2018.

PAR® Wine Award International 2018 welcomes Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Lebanon and Israel to its third edition.

The selection of countries involved consciously remains focused on the Eastern Europe and Eastern Mediterranean areas, as well as the Black Sea region. The key objective of the contest is to learn more about the diversity of the products native to these ancient and upcoming wine-growing nations, in particular, its distinctive qualities. Each wine obtains its quality evaluation by nuanced PAR assessment method that covers the origin and the style of the product. The limitation of the number of participating countries warrants the high detail precision, and at the same time, the repeatability of the PAR method ensures the possibility of the international comparison of the products.

Besides attracting attention brought by this competition, many wine-growers appreciate the revealing analyses underlying the PAR-assessment. They show which exact criteria have led to matching results and provide a valuable manual for the quality management. This method promises an objective evaluation using the 100 points system based on the transparent documentation.
