PRESS RELEASE / JANUARY 2011

« Les Grands Concours du monde »- the great worldwide wine competitions

From April 9th to 11th at the Congress Centre Strasbourg (France)

• Riesling du monde

• Pinot Gris du monde

• Gewurztraminer du monde

have obtained the patronage of the OIV !!!

The ambition of Les Grands Concours du monde is to foster the promotion of grape varieties throughout

the world, to give producers the opportunity to present their best wines and to offer consumers the unassailable

credibility of concrete results with the guarantee of the competence of professional international tasters

(oenologists, wine waiters, celebrities from the wine world, cellar men, wine merchants, specialist journalists,

etc.)

Following the procedures in 2010 to call on the patronage of the OIV (International Organisation of Vine

and Wine), the 3 international wine competitions have been controlled and the OIV has decided to give its

prestigious patronage to Strasbourg Evénements!

Moreover, the Union de la Sommellerie Française (UDSF) has agreed to be the official sponsor of the three

competitions in 2011!

For the prize winners, being awarded a Great Gold Medal or a gold or silver medal at Riesling du monde,

Pinot Gris du monde or Gewurztraminer du monde will guarantee worldwide recognition and the chance to

promote their wines internationally.

Entry deadline for wine producers who wish to present their wines in the competitions:

March 7th 2011

Registration file available on www.portail-vins-du-monde.com
