Purcari became again the most awarded winery in another wine competition. Our wines have conquered the jury at the International Wine & Spirit Competition, one of the largest wine competitions in the world, held in the UK. Purcari received 7 silver and bronze medals.

Thus, Alb de Purcari 2014, Negru de Purcari 2012, Freedom Blend 2014 and Vinohora Fetească Albă & Chardonnay 2014 won silver medals, while Alb de Purcari 2013, Negru de Purcari Vintage 2013 and Ice Wine 2014 were awarded with bronze.

International Wine & Spirit Competition is at the 47th edition.  Entries into the Competition are received from nearly 90 countries worldwide, and around 400 judges  are tasting the wines. The Competition runs a structured and rigorous two-stage judging process, first using the ‘double blind’ judging method meaning samples are tasted in pre-poured numbered glasses so that judges never see a bottle, and the second a chemical analysis.

In 2015, at the IWSC, Purcari won five bronze medals. Details can be found here:

In 2016, Purcari received 10 medals at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards competition, 10 medals at the International Wine Contest Bucharest, three medals at the Challenge International du Vin and a medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
