And each year, their efforts are rewarded with more medals than the previous year – a testament to their winemaking ability and also to the award-winning quality that Winexpert wine kits produce.
- Once again, every variety offered in Selection Limited Edition last year was awarded a medal. This makes it four years in a row!
- Selection Estate Series wine kits took home 63 medals. Nine varieties won gold including Washington Columbia Valley Riesling, Castellina Supertuscan di Siena, and the newest Crushendo – South Australian Single Vineyard Shiraz.
- Every Selection Spéciale product was a multiple medal winner. Our Port, Cab Franc Icewine style, and Riesling Icewine style were all gold medal winners.
- Wines made with Selection International and Selection Original series wine kits won more medals than the previous year, indicating the increasing interest in wines from around the world and the premium quality that can be achieved with these products.
