The MUNDUS VINI BIOFACH Grand International Organic Wine Award of MUNDUS VINI GmbH is an international competition held in Germany for organic wines from all wine-growing regions around the world. The aim of the competition is to promote wine quality and boost the sales of the wines and sparkling wines entered.
An international jury delivers an independent, neutral and expert verdict on the wines, thereby guaranteeing that the competition is both fair and professional. This bestows a high level of recognition upon the medals awarded at MUNDUS VINI, the prize-winning wines and their producers.
2.1 Still wines of all quality grades, grape varieties or origins and tastes.
2.2 Sparkling wines of all quality grades, grape varieties or origins and tastes.
2.3 Semi-sparkling wines of all quality grades, grape varieties or origins and tastes.
2.4 Sweet wines
2.5 Fortified wines
A highly qualified international jury comprising oenologists, wine-makers, professional wine traders, sommeliers and expert journalists taste the wines, sparkling wines and fortified wines in ‘blind’ tasting rounds. The wines are placed in order according to their product category, origin, quality grade and taste and judged according to the international 100-point scheme applied by the International Organisation of vine and Wine (OIV), which is also recognised by the International Association of Oenologists (UIOE).
The number of products destined to receive prizes in the competition is limited to 40% of the samples submitted with the highest points tally reached in their relevant category.
The award grades are:
Wine of the year
The best wine from the relevant product categories can also receive an additional award. If two best wines in the same category are level on points, MUNDUS VINI GmbH reserves the right to call in a master jury to taste the wines once again. In this way, only one wine per category can receive an award. The winner receives a document and a medal, prepared by MUNDUS VINI, can be included on the label. The MUNDUS VINI BIOFACH Grand International Organic Wine Awards are also entitled not to bestow an award in any given year.
