BRATISLAVA will host one of the world’s major viticulture competitions next year, as the 20th Concours Mondial de Bruxelles comes to the Slovak capital.

Slovakia will be the first former Eastern bloc country to host the prestigious competition.

“It is a success of our diplomacy and its long intensive work for one and a half years that convinced people abroad about the top quality of Slovak wines, as well as about the attractiveness of Slovakia as a destination,” František Stano, the general director of the Slovak Tourist Board (SACR), told the SITA newswire.

Since 1994 the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has been one of the most prestigious international events for winemakers.

Each year more than 270 oenophiles from around the world meet to select the best wines from about 8,400 entrants in the competition, Stano told SITA.
