Concours Mondial de Bruxelles

Concours Mondial de Bruxelles returns to Italy

16.09.2021, News

The Calabrian city of Cosenza is set to host the competition’s main session for red and white wines. The decision was announced online on Thursday 16 September.

The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will now be held in 4 different sessions so that each type of wine can be judged professionally. The evaluations will be handled by specialist experts, chosen for their knowledge and their ability to taste every type of wine depending on their specific characters.

The different sessions will take place at dates dictated by production and marketing requirements for each style of wine. The 4 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles tasting sessions will run annually in different producer and/or consumer regions.

Rosé Wine Session:

Open indiscriminately to all still, sparkling and semi-sparkling rosé wines along with fortified rosés. By holding this event in March, the aim is to provide an effective response to market needs and to the growing interest shown by consumers for rosé wines. It provides awarded producers with promotion and marketing tools as soon as the wines are released for sale.

Red and White Wine Session:

Open indiscriminately to all white wines (including orange wines) and all still dry and medium dry red wines from all origins and made from all types of grape varieties. This session – the largest in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles for the number of entries – takes place every year in May.
