More than 200 of the world’s top wine experts have flown into London to begin judging the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards, the world’s largest wine competition.
Our Silver medal winner Bio Kéknyelű wine has received 93 points out of 100.
It is a great pleasure for us to increase the appreciation of organic wines internationally! Recognition is primarily about the two winemakers, but every success is a good team work.
