The Jurys motivation to the award:

This year's Gyllene Glaset is awarded to Weingut Leitz from Rheingau. For their constantly high level – from the simpler to the more exclusive wines, all with clear origin. And for their investment in non-alcoholic wines that show that it is possible to produce alcohol-free wines of good quality.
