I think this competition is a very good development ! One of the most prestigious, promising Mediterranean wine growing regions finally now has its own annual event.
The compliments of the curators present at the competition have elicited pride, gratification and strong motivation to pay more attention to improving the quality of the wines produced by our vineyard.
Grenache wines taking centre stage - this is an initiative everyone has been waiting for! It is a celebration of diversity, the cornerstone of southern vineyards that lends itself to many different interpretations ... Each vineyard presents its Grenache as a heritage to interpret.
I would like to sincerely thank you for having invited me to the Grenaches du Monde competition. Everything went flawlessly. I hope that you will continue to run this great initiative !
