Balkans Wine Competition

The XI Balkans International Wine Competition invites Ukrainian winemakers to take part in the competition free of charge

09.05.2022, News

The Balkan International Wine Competition will take place from 1 to 3 June on the historic island of Salamis, Greece, under the auspices of the Municipality of Salamis. The Balkan Wine Festival will be held in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, from 16 to 18 June 2022.

This year’s competition is open to wine producers from the Balkan Peninsula, Central and Eastern Europe, the Black Sea region, as well as to wine producers from any other wine region.

Salamis is an island near Athens where the famous Battle of Salamis took place 2,500 years ago. The victory at Salamis marked the beginning of change in European history and preserved civilization. Now history is being made in Ukraine, where the struggle between democracy and tyranny is taking place! Therefore, Salamina is looking forward to Ukrainian wines, creating all the conditions for our winemakers to be able to present their products at the XI Balkans International Wine Competition.


The Wine Travel Awards (WTA) team will take part in the Balkans International Wine Competition 2022. There will be a presentation of Ukrainian wines, as well as wine tasting of WTA nominees and sponsors coming all over the world. The Wine Travel Awards Guide – a special advertising edition in English that is published by Drinks+ Communication Media Group once a year in printed and digital versions – will also be featured at the competition. It includes stories about all nominees, winners of public voting and prize-winners.

Our team does our best to talk about Ukrainian wine on the largest international platforms, to acquaint ourselves with its original tastes and excellent quality, and most importantly to support talented, courageous and indomitable Ukrainians who defend their homeland and even continue taking care of their vineyards under enemy shelling and missiles. 

BWC Chairman Igor Lukovic, BIWCF Managing Director Galina Niforou, Wine MBA, Honorary Chairman of BIWC Konstantinos Lazarakis MW wish success to all Ukrainian participants in The XI Balkans International Wine Competition and Festival 2022!
