Those who work with nature on a daily basis; with its cycles, caprices and mechanisms, are usually also well acquainted with change. Sometimes it comes slowly and sometimes unexpectedly; but as surely as every cloud has a silver lining. We at WINE SYSTEM, who have been organising the international organic wine award for more than a decade, also feel this change. And we have decided to shape it with our own enthusiasm and and according to our motto 'Trust your Senses'. So now you will not only find our company in a new look; our largest PAR tasting also has a new design.

And it is now globally called the same:


We would now like to cordially invite you and your organic wines to the autumn edition of this competition. For it is in the interplay with the forces of nature, in the skilful union of ecology and craftsmanship, that quality is created. And quality is what convinces in the end; what moves and inspires people.

Show the excellence of your wines - your craftsmanship, your passion, your terroir. We look forward to each and every one of them!

Sincerely yours,

Brigitte Wüstinger and Martin Darting

WINE SYSTEM – Trust your Senses

The jury, consisting of PAR® Certified Masters, works in teams of two and evaluates each wine individually and as part of a team. Whether a stylistically modern fruity white wine, a elegantly crafted terroir wine or an original orange, each wine receives transparent documentation of its sensory characteristics, which are evaluated in terms of origin, climate and style.

In addition to the marketing benefits of this competition, many winegrowers appreciate the insightful analyses on which the PAR® rating is based. They show exactly which criteria have led to adequate results and provide a practical manual for quality management. The PAR® data sheet identifies the criteria according to which there is potential for further improvement in wine. With this knowledge, winemakers can take appropriate measures themselves for the next vintage or seek competent advice.
