Over 8,750 wines from 51 producer countries competed before a selection of the world’s foremost tasters. Sommeliers, buyers, importers, journalists and wine writers – in all, 320 wine tasters representing 54 nationalities gathered for 3 days to judge entries.
The diverse range, both of entries and backgrounds of the tasters themselves, is one of the archetypal features of a competition that in just a few years has emerged as a world wine ‘tasting championship’.
The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will return next year to Spain and will visit Valladolid, Spain, in the heart of the Castilla y León region.
