SPARKLING WINE COMPETITION 2019

About

Wine competition dedicated to sparkling wines is integral part of Salon of Sparkling Wines from its beginning in 2014. Three years later, in 2017 (mostly) Slovenian sparkling wines from SSW Ljubljana got company from Croatia. Since than the wine competition is common for all Salons of Sparkling Wines and held on one of the salon locations. The jury is international, members are representatives of: winemakers, oenologists, sommeliers, Chefs, journalists, hospitality partners, trade etc. 

 

The international sparkling wine competition is two-level competition, which means that end results will be classified in two ways and that we will be present two types of awards:

- Salon awards: at the opening of an individual salon, we will announce best ranked sparkling wines (by categories) of all those sparkling wines that were submitted by the winemakers of each salon and award them with salon awards;

- Great recognition of the network: classification of all sparkling wines (by categories), which will be submitted from all wine producers from the countries where Salon of Sparkling Wines is present.
