It is up to you how you send your wine to us. Please produce a parcel label for each sample. Affix this label in a prominent position on your parcel, as this helps us to sort incoming goods.
Our competitions have allowed barrel samples since 2014. Please send us your samples with the completed barrel tasting application. You can affix provisional labels to the bottles. These labels must contain the following information: product name, AP/batch number and alcohol content.
Please note that special rules apply to barrel samples and partially bottled wines. In the event that one of your barrel samples wins a medal, you have a period of four months to bottle the wine and order the medal awarded. In the case of partially bottled wines, you have six months to order medals.
If you wish to order medals in either case, we first require two bottles of your wine.
Please send these bottles to the following address:
MUNDUS VINI GmbH
MUNDUS VINI Analysis 2023-1
Your samples will be analysed by an independent laboratory. Once we have received the results, we will inform you of the next steps.
If significant differences are identified between the initial sample and the subsequent analysis, we reserve the right to revoke the medal.
The wines are assigned to a tasting in accordance with their product category, quality class and flavour. They are then analysed using a system based on the international 100-point system of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV), which is also recognised by the International Union of Oenologists (UIOE).
For the international judging panel to award a wine the SILVER medal, the wine must score at least 85 points.
For the international judging panel to award a wine the GOLD medal, the wine must score at least 90 points.
The GRAND GOLD award is only bestowed upon the very best wines. For the international judging panel to award a wine this medal, the wine must score at least 95 points.
MUNDUS VINI GmbH
MUNDUS VINI 2023-1
Please affix a pro forma invoice, with a detailed product description, to the parcel.
The product description must include the number of bottles, volume per bottle, alcohol content, price per bottle and wine category (still wine, sparkling wine; red, white, rosé, etc.).
The invoice must include the following sentence: ‘This parcel contains free samples for a tasting. The goods are not for resale.’
The EORI number of MUNDUS VINI GmbH is DE5362369.
[for example: an internal batch number has been provided during registration, but does not match the number on the bottle or label. We will enter the batch number on the bottle into our database. (The wine inspection office of Landwirtschaftskammer Rheinland-Pfalz inspects a random selection of the samples submitted. If this gives rise to discrepancies, the award given to the sample may be revoked.) It is not the product itself that is recognised, but the batch number tasted!]
Once we have checked the details against our system, we will store your wine horizontally, away from direct sunlight and at the appropriate temperature in one of our refrigerated storage facilities until the tasting begins.
Firstly, you can pay the outstanding amount by bank transfer upon receipt of the invoice.
You can also pay the invoice amount online, either via PayPal or by credit card.
For details such as the sample ID or the award-winning batch number, please refer to your user profile on our website. Please return your completed order form to [email protected].
We will be happy to make the corresponding medals available for download free of charge so that you can use them for all your marketing activities, e.g. catalogue, price list, newsletter, website and social media. Here, you will once again find the medal order form. You will find a link to our media pack at the end of your results email.
Best of Show:
The best wine in each category (origin, grape variety, price category, business type, distribution channel) will be recognised with this additional award. If two wines in one category receive the same score, MUNDUS VINI GmbH reserves the right to call upon a panel of master judges to taste the wines again. In this way, only one wine can be named Best of Show per category. MUNDUS VINI The Grand International Wine Award also reserves the right not to give an award in any given year. The winner receives a certificate and the right to include the MUNDUS VINI ‘Best of Show’ medal on the label.
Best Grower/ Importer:
In order to be eligible for the Best Grower award, a grower must enter at least ten wines in the competition. For the Best Importer award, at least 20 wines have to be entered in the competition by the same importer.
At least 50% of the wines in the competition have to have been awarded a medal. In the event that two or more growers achieve the same average score for their samples, the grower with the most medals shall be named the winner.
