International wine competition MONDIAL DES VINS EXTREMES

2017 25th Edition
Award-winning wines

The competition

The competition selects the best wines from extreme viticulture with the aim of promoting and safeguarding the produce from small vine-growing areas having their own distinctive history, traditions and uniqueness; areas with high environmental and landscape value, mostly cultivating local vine varieties.They are true “islands of wine-growing biodiversity“ which, however, are in danger of disappearing due to their high production costs (it costs 10 times as much to keep a vineyard here than in flat areas).
