„Best of Bio wine“ is a special organic wine award. Special because the wines are tasted and awarded not only by professional experts but also wine lovers. Together with Jürgen Schmücking as tasting manager we are looking for the most popular and best organic wines for bio-affine wine lovers.
“Due to the positive feedback from past Best of Bio Awards, we have decided to again do an audience tasting this year. The wines are blindly tasted in meaningful assembled groups. It is not, however, that individual wines are judged, rather it is that the tasted teams from the respective (mostly 10) groups select their favorites. It is also important to us that consumers discuss the wines and make a joint decision which they can justify. This also means that there is no detailed feedback on the wines that are not selected.“
Jürgen Schmücking, tasting manager
