The competition selects the best wines stemming from extreme viticulture and aims at promoting and defending production in small wine-growing areas, which can be defined by a particular history and rich traditions. Local vine varieties are being cultivated in these areas with great environmental values and unique landscapes. However, these isles of wine-growing biodiversity are constantly in danger of disappearing because of their high production costs: in fact, cultivating a vineyard in one of these mountanous regions costs ten times as much as it would cultivating on a flatland vineyard.Information
A new international competition called "EXTREME SPIRITS INTERNATIONAL CONTEST". This time the contest is expressly dedicated to distillates of vinous origin (pomace, lees and wine) coming from the same heroic areas. The aim is always to enhance the hard work and the distilled products that derive from it, as well as encouraging and orienting the consumer towards the choice of those particular products.Information
Wines produced in vineyards presenting one of the following structural difficulties can be admitted to Mondial des Vins Extrêmes: 500 meters above sea level, excluding vineyards of high plateaus; slopes with gradients greater than 30%; vines grown on terraces or embankments; vines grown on small islands. Wines labelled PDO - Protected Denomination of Origin - or PGI - Protected Geographical Indication are eligible to the wine contest.
