Golden League
The League of Wine Champions

Golden League - la Ligue des Champions du Vin

La Golden League est la ligue des Champions du Vin. Celui qui remporte ce moment fort du Wine Trophies figure sans aucun doute parmi les producteurs de vin les plus performants au monde. Cela signifie: en tant que vainqueur de la Golden League, c’est comme s’il avait la coupe du monde de l’industrie du vin entre ses mains.

Le prix le plus élevé de l'industrie du vin dans le monde

Dans la prestigieuse Golden League, les gagnants de tous les Wine Trophies d’une même année civile participent à des concours, les uns contre les autres: à la recherche des meilleurs des meilleurs. Au lieu d’organiser un autre concours de dégustation, un tableau des médailles, comme aux Jeux Olympiques, est réalisé – l’évaluation de l’ensemble des médailles de tous les Wine Trophies DWM.

Ici, toutes les médailles, en « Argent », en « Or » ainsi que les « Grand Or » de tous les  concours de vin de la DWM d’une même année civile sont additionnées par participant. Donc, celui qui à l’occasion des deux Berliner Wein Trophy, du Portugal Wine Trophy et du Asia Wine Trophy, remporte au total le plus grand nombre et les plus hautes médailles, sera reconnu par la Ligue comme l’un des meilleurs producteurs.

Détails sur la Golden League

With the Golden League, DWM introduced in 2014 an additional award for the submitters of the various Wine Trophies, which is only reserved to the producers. In order to offer opportunities to the smaller producers to position themselves in addition to the big players based on their quality, different categories have been introduced here that were formed on the basis of the company size. Companies that buy additional quantities of wine or grapes and market them under their own label are classified according to the total amount produced. This leads to an objective comparison other companies of its size.

The categories

Overall prizes will be given in different categories:

• There will be a category each for producers with sizes up to 10, up to 20, up to 30, up to 40, up to 50, up to 100, up to 250, up to 500 and over 500 hectars.
• There will also be a category for cooperatives up to 250, up to 500 and over 500 hectars.
• For sparkling wine producers, there will be a category each for up to 25, up to 50 and over 50 hectars.
• Generally for fortified wine producers (Port wine, Madeira, Sherry, etc.).

The division into these categories is the best way to ensure an objective classification.

The reviews

All the products awarded at the Wine Trophies will be considered in the reviews. For the different medals, a score has been set. The addition of the individual scores and individual Trophies contributes to the total score for each company at the end of the year.
