3 gold and 16 silver medals for Belgium at the Cool Climate and Rosé Wine Awards 2023

On 9 and 10 May 2023, the above wine competitions CCWA and IRC were organised in Poland for the fifth time, with Vicky Corbeels as judge for the second time. Not coincidentally, Belgian domains also sent in wines for the second time: 35 Belgian white, rosé, red and sparkling wines from 13 wine estates ventured their chance at a medal, amid 120 entries from eight countries for the CCWA and 150 entries from 17 countries for the IRC.

Belgian wines are given every opportunity and a suitable forum at these blind tasting competitions to have their specificity assessed by international professional tasters. Vicky’s master class on Belgian wines for the judges and for the Polish organisation brought our “curious, unknown” wine country a little closer. Interest in our climate, soil structure, grape varieties  ensued to interesting discussions and, as the icing on the cake, our wines with a wide range of grape varieties also deservedly performed well at both competitions.
