The 21st Vinitaly International Wine Competition, held in Verona, Italy, is considered to be one of the most selective and influential competitions in the world, and particularly rigorous in selecting worthy of a medal.

With this impressive winning, the Golan Heights Winery continues the series of his international success of winnings.

Still wines, semi-sparkling wines and sparkling wines are the three classification categories for almost 3,000 samples entered from 30 countries. All entries were rendered anonymous before the competition and were
subjected to careful assessment by 21 juries chaired by Giuseppe Martelli, Director General of Assoenologi and President of the National Wine Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture.
Fifteen tasting sessions involved over 40 hours of assessments that also saw the debut of a digital format; an absolute innovation and an impressive technological investment by Veronafiere and Assoenologi that is
unmatched by any other similar major international competition.
