Romania’s winemaker Cotnari SA has won a grand gold medal at the International Wine Championship in Quebec, Canada, for its Romanian Tamaioasa, Cotnari SA manager Constantin Deleanu said Monday.

“Being crowned with a Grand Gold Medal at such important a competition is the highest distinction any winemaker dreams of,” Deleanu told journalists at a press conference.

Deleanu said two more gold medals went to Chateau Cotnari vintage 2012 and Grasa de Cotnari 1992, while Grasa de Cotnari 2005 won a silver medal.  The International Wine Championship was created in 1983 and is held in Quebec under the high aegis of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV), the International Union of Oenologists (UIOE) and of the International Federation of Wines and Spirits (VINOFED).

The jury was made up of 39 members from around the world who tasted over 1,700 samples during four days of competition. Competing in the championship were the most prestigious vineyards from countries such as France, Chile, Canada and Hungary.
