Best Wine In Box
Grande Passione's insight:

The purpose of the competition is to taste wines in BIB and to name the best: “Best Wine in Box”.

Only gold medals for this first international competition dedicated to these wines in BIB and hence rarely presented for tastings.

Only the best will receive the “Best Wine in Box” medal.

Without taking into account price or appearance, the wines will be blind-tasted by category and by a jury of professionals and knowledgeable amateurs.
