Grand International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI

The Grand International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI is awarded to non-alcoholic wines for the first time

20.03.2023, News

Consumer interest in such a trend as alcohol-free wine is steadily growing. For the first time, a tasting of such wines took place at the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting 2023.

At this year’s Mundus Vini Spring Tasting as part of the 32nd Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Award, non-alcoholic wine was presented for the first time. A total of 187 wines were tasted, the best of which were awarded 21 gold and 54 silver medals.

The largest number of medals went to manufacturers from Germany, followed by Spain, France, New Zealand and Italy. The awarding will take place at ProWein Düsseldorf.

The new tasting topic “Non-alcoholic drinks” was led by MUNDUS VINI board member prof. Dr. Ulrich Fischer.

“In my opinion, there are big differences in the quality of the presented wines. The best wines are characterized by varietal typicality, good taste and delicate tannins, which makes alcohol-free wines a real alternative. I predict that the market share of non-alcoholic wines, which is currently around one percent, will increase significantly in the next few years,” said Ulrich Fischer.

Special awards in the “non-alcoholic beverages” category were awarded to:
