“This is proof of the commitment of winemakers and wine buyers in our wine contest” (President of the Gironde Chamber of Agriculture).
This Chamber of Agriculture is in charge of the organisation of this wine contest but also of the collection of wines in wineries and to ensure that wine will be judged in blind taste. It’s also in charge of the fight against fraud and any other illegal activity to the detriment of the credibility of the Bordeaux Wine Awards. It has introduced various devices that prevent forgery medal such as:
- Verification of wines in outlets (at any time, anti-fraud can check the award-winning wines)
- Implementation of macaroons secured by a hologram
- Candidate wines are note delivered to the organisation, but instead taken directly from the winery
Each Wine Tasting Table is chaired by a President. There are four tasters (2 professionals and 2 amateurs) who must taste a dozen wines in blind taste.
