Maximum transparency: The jury's approach

The jury of PAR® Certified Master tasters works in teams of two and evaluates each wine first individually and then as a team. A rating is only recorded once a consensus has been reached. Whether it is a stylistically modern fruity white wine, a nobly crafted terroir wine or an original orange: Each wine receives comprehensible documentation of its sensory characteristics, which are evaluated in terms of origin, climate and style.

Maximum benefit: The PAR® advantage

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