Welcome to the Citadelles du Vin website,
a prestigious wine competition organized during the Vinexpo exhibition and under the patronage of the OIV !
This site is intended for all Internet users having a passion for the world's great wines : growers, tasters, consumers, distributors …
Every year, in May, some 40 top level tasters from all over the world meet in Bourg (Bordeaux-France) for three days to elect the best wines out of 800 samples coming from about 30 countries.
The contest has now attained a significant level of samples and international recognition (70% of foreign wines), making the Citadelles du Vin one of the key competitions of the world.
In 2012, the award ceremony and the promotion of the prize winning wines will take place during Vinexpo Asia-Pacific, the very influential international wine and spirit exhibition held in Hong Kong.
