Pinot Noir from Germany heads "Mondial des Pinot" competition
1100 wines made of pinot grape varieties from 361 producers coming from 21 countries were tasted by the international jury. The 21st edition of the MONDIAL DES PINOTS competition was held in Sierre (Valais) from August 5th to 7th, 2018. The majority of wines registered came from Switzerland. This is why it is all the more remarkable that a German pinot noir won the MONDIAL DES PINOTS competition which is the biggest pinot wine competition across the globe.
Three Great Gold medals, five Gold medals and 28 Silver medals went to German wines at this year's contest. The most important awards were given to the above mentioned two estates Wilhelmshof and Winzergenossenschaft Bötzingen and, in addition, to the winner Bickensohler Weinvogtei eG (Baden) for the 2017 pinot blanc wine Bickensohler Steinfelsen Weißburgunder "SK" Kabinett trocken.
The five German Gold medal winners are: Alde Gott Winzer Schwarzwald eG (Baden) with Spätburgunder, Fellbacher Weingärtner eG (Württemberg) with Spätburgunder Weißherbst, Kaiserstühler Winzerverein Oberrotweil (Baden) with Ruländer, Weingut Schloss Proschwitz Prinz zur Lippe (Saxony) with Spätburgunder, and Winzergenossenschaft Jechtingen-Amoltern am Kaiserstuhl eG (Baden) with Weißer Burgunder.
