About the International Rosé Championship

The contest is aimed specifically at producers of rosé wines. This exclusivity will allow the jury to concentrate on the unique qualities of the wines, which may have been overlooked at those wine competitions that do not specialise in this category. It will also allow the organisation to group the wines carefully with regard to their dryness, grape varieties, vintage, barrel ageing/fermenting or deliberate decisions of winemakers (e.g. bottling without filtration).

The competition takes a new approach to wine judging so as to avoid the shortcomings of many contemporary wine contests. Instead of summing up points awarded on the basis of parametrical analyses judges will take their time to discuss the individuality and style of every single wine in the flight. The members of the jury have been chosen from among the most knowledgeable experts in rosé wine (including Masters of Wine) representing various countries of the wine world.

The bottles left after the competition will be used to promote rosé wines on the Polish market during the autumn ENOEXPO in Krakow, the biggest wine fair in Poland. The top ten wines will be presented at a special master class during the exhibition.
