Q & A with Martin Darting – head of wine tasting

international organic wine award 2014

Q & A with Martin Darting – head of wine tasting

What is your verdict on this year's organic wine ward?

Is there a qualitative trend which is emerging in the international organic wine sector?

To summarise, it can be said that the internatinal organic wine award 2014 was the most successful ever, having a turnout of 729 wines from 184 wineries in 19 countries was enormous. This result covered a wide range of styles: from modern to fruity traditional and other “interesting wines” all was there. It was enjoyable with the quality of the wines being quite impressive! Also it was very pleasing that for the first time we had entries from Turkey which achieved 6 gold awards from the 15 wines presented, a great result. Comparably, it can be said that the quality in the organic wine sector has continued to rise – especially for white wines, 26 of them being awarded gold with excellence (96 – 100 points), that's quite extraordinary.

A record attendance at the 2014 international organic wine award 2014:

Remarkable quality and an extensive variety

577 organic wines from 19 countries were awarded with a medal.

Frasdorf, 07 July 2014

The 2014 international organic wine award 2014 was the most successful yet. With a record number of 729 organic wines from 184 winemakers in 19 countries, the independent panel of winemakers, IHK (German Chamber of Industry and Commerce) certified consultants, sommeliers and wine experts could give a very positive review of independent wine pricing on this fifth anniversary. This year 43 organic wines were given the commendation of gold with excellence (96 to 100 points), 267 with gold (90-95 points) and 267 with silver (83-89 points). The awards were presented on the 27th – 29th June 2014 in Bad Dürkheim, Rhineland-Palatinate. The wine-tasting used the internationally recognised PAR® method, which is considered a comprehensible and particularly objective test. The results are now available for growers, distributors and wine lovers under www.organic-wine-award.info and on the accessible database (Wein-Datenbank) of WINE System AG.
