In the most important sparkling wine contest in the world, Italian companies take home 58 gold medals, six more than the French. Exceptional achievement by Ferrari, named winery of the year by beating the prestigious Maison Roederer. The list of all the Italian wines that have won the gold medal, with notable surprises. A useful indication for purchases in view of the Christmas toasts and the end of the year.

Great affirmation of Italy to the ‘Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2021‘, the most famous international competition dedicated to bubbles from all over the world. Over a thousand labels presented in the competition and tasted by the international jury of the authoritative competition, the Italian producers took home a rich game bag: well 58 gold medals against the 52 won by French producers. And the most prestigious award of “Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year”, went to the Ferrari company, proclaimed winery of the year. The Maison de Champagne Luis Roederer, winner of the last edition, which totaled 7 gold and 4 silver medals, therefore had to settle for the second podium of the competition

Particularly, the company of the Lunelli group has beaten all the numerous competition, and in addition to the title of Winery of the year, having conquered 12 gold and 8 silver medals hit a real international record.

“Congratulations to Ferrari Trento for winning the title of Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year 2021: a fantastic award for a fantastic producer!” so commented Tom Stevenson, founder and president of CSWWC, Champagne Sparkling Wine World Championships, the world’s leading expert on bubbles.

Among other things, note theheterogeneity of award-winning Italian wines ranging from Franciacorta and Trentodoc, to Lambrusco, to territorial expressions such as Sicily which have shown that they can compete internationally for the level achieved in recent years.

The level achieved by the Italian production has found further confirmation in the 129 silver medals awarded to our country, an exceptional result that sees the French companies far behind by several lengths: in fact they have won only 50 medals.

“Over the past seven years I have tried to encourage producers to focus on potential gold and silver medal winning wines – commented Tom Stevenson – This does not necessarily mean presenting their most expensive and prestigious products. We want to taste the prestigious cuvées, the competition has grown every year, the mission of the CSWWC is not only to promote world-class wines, but also to discover and reward new and exciting wines from established and emerging regions around the world ” .

The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC) is the only international sparkling wine competition judged by sparkling wine specialists, for the new generation of sparkling wine consumers who love sparkling wine on every occasion.

The CSWWC guarantees their provenance and promotes the world-class sparkling wines of each region as gastronomic wines par excellence. The competition has reached its seventh edition.
