Award Winners: Riesling Worldwide Competition fought out between France and Germany
5

59 wines sampled by 220 international tasters who awarded 167 medals - these are the figures for the Riesling International Worldwide Competition which was held in Strasbourg on 26th January.
The judges decided between Riesling wines from across the globe; the awards list reflects this diversity, whilst reaffirming the preeminence of the two leading wine-producing nations for this grape variety. Germany and France, therefore, shared equally the four awards for excellence. 72 Gold Medals were also awarded (40 France, 25 Germany, 3 Canada ( 1 for Ontario and 2 for British Columbia), 1 Austria, 1 Australia, 1 Luxembourg, 1 Czech Republic) as well as 91 Silver Medals (57 France, 22 Germany, 4 Luxembourg, 3 USA (the State of New York), 2 Australia, 2 Canada (Ontario), 1 Czech Republic).
Wine Alley can count several wine medal winners on its homepage, of which:

- The Grand Cru Florimont 2004 from the wine-producing estate of the town of Colmar was awarded a gold medal in the catogry of Grand Cru Antérieur.
- The same Granc Cru Florimont from the Colmar wine-producing estate, this time a 2006 vintage, was awarded silver in the category of Grand Cru.
- The Grand Cru Sporen 2007, from the estate of Bernard Schwach-Domaine du Moulin de Dusenbach, was also awarded silver in the category of Grand Cru.

Our many congratulations to the award winners (to view the awards list in full, click here)
