This year, 26 professionals from 20 nationalities were in charge of tasting almost 200 wine samples from 11 different origins that have participated in the contest. All jury members have pointed out the overall wine quality, as well as the relevance of a contest with these characteristics; a competition that contributes to a deeper understanding of the multiple possibilities of this wine category in the market.
The International Bulk Wine Competition takes place one day prior to the World Bulk Wine Exhibition, the most important fair worldwide in terms of turnover, and which gathers 85% of the global supply of bulk wine.
