Collaboration with top domestic and foreign tasters was excellent and they were able to evaluate wines of exceptional quality. In this year, foreign winemakers won the main categories. And although we would like champion titles to Moravian winemakers, this year's results show the true independence of the Oenoforum rating.

A summary of all awards is attached to this press release.
This year, a modest majority of samples were from the Czech Republic, but wines from Slovakia and from France, Italy, Germany, New Zealand and other countries were also registered. Thanks to the OIV patronage, the competition is exceptionally professional and demanding. In the jury, the European winemakers and winegrowers, representatives of OIV (the International Organization of Wine and Winegrowing in Paris), UIOE (International Union of Oenologists) and the best evaluators from the Czech Republic and Slovakia will meet.
International wine conference in conjunction with Oenoforum 2017 is an unique opportunity for all that work in this exciting industry. From vine-dressers and oenologists through sommeliers to wine dealers. It is a great opportunity that brings the European outlook on topic of each respective edition of this conference. There are three basic factors supporting this concept. The international speakers are always chosen on the basis of their location, so that the experience they bring is motivational and beneficial to the local producers. Part of the conference is also hands-on. Each presentation is enhanced by tasting topic appropriate wines chosen by the speaker. Last but not least is the topic. The topic is chosen in order to highlight the development and innovation within the industry, but also to show the experience of producers from the wine producing countries.
