At the 23rd "Mondial des Pinots" wine competition in Sierre (Switzerland), eleven German Pinots, including seven Pinot Noirs, were awarded a gold medal. Another 19 German Pinots won a silver medal. Over three days, 58 jurors evaluated 1132 wines from 21 countries for the competition which had been postponed from May to September.
