Pinot Grigio Veneto or Grauburgunder from Baden, Pinot Noir from Burgundy or the siblings from California. Already these few examples show that the styles of Pinots from all over the world are as miscellaneous as their makers are.

It is about the true living diversity– the ground for blooming originals.

This Award is dedicated precisely to them – the diversity of Pintos, their originals, their makers and their qualities.

WINE SYSTEM – Trust your Senses

The closing date for applications is 17 June 2022.

The tasting will take place from 01 to 04 July 2022.


The jury of PAR® Certified Masters operates in a crew of two that tastes each wine separately. After reaching a consensus at the second step of the procedure, the jury records the assessment results. Whether a stylistically modern white wine, a traditional terroir wine or an original orange, every product obtains transparent documentation of its sensory features consistently rated to the origin, climate and style.

The alignment of origin and terroir is based on the EU regulation of PDO (protected designation of origin) and PGI( protected geographical indications) and in reference to scientific data regarding wine development and quality definition.


Besides marketing benefits brought by this competition, many winegrowers appreciate the revealing analyses underlying the PAR®-assessment illustrating which criteria led to the result and providing a practical manual for quality management. The PAR® data sheet identifies the parameters for the existing potential to improve the wine. This data helps the winemakers to take action for the new vintage on their own or to obtain advice.
