“545 wines from 15 countries faced the international jury of experts
Trained senses, fine noses and palates, and an expert eye for the fine wine in the glass were essential qualities again this time when it came to deciding which of the top organic wines entered were to receive the BioFach 2008 International Wine Award. More than 35 international tasters from the fields of oenology, wine trade, winegrowing and cellar techniques, sommeliers and wine journalists tasted altogether 545 top wines from 15 countries on 1-2 December 2007 in Nürnberg.
This time, 306 red, 183 white, 16 rosé, and 18 each of sparkling wine and dessert wine competed for Special Gold, Gold and Recommendations. 4 very special wines were also tasted. These included Amarone specialities from Veneto and wine from fungus-resistant varieties of vines. Red wine was represented most strongly with 56 %. 34 % of the wines entered were white wines. The leading countries in the BioFach 2008 International Wine Award were Italy with 125 wines entered, followed by Austria (118), Germany (105), Spain (88) and France (53). But not only the classic regions were represented; currently less known winegrowing regions like Poland and Slovenia also entered a selection of fine wines. ”
