Trophy for The World’s Best Gamay

The supreme award

Since 2015, at the end of a competition a ‘Grand Jury’ re-tastes the gold medal winners with the best scores to determine which is the World’s Best Gamay, and a trophy for this supreme award is given to the winner at the awards ceremony.

“After my brother and I won the trophy last year, we were able to showcase all our cuvées, and sales doubled. Our entire Chiroubles production was sold almost at once! The wine profession talks about this competition a lot, so we were able to add numerous contacts to our network, in France and for the export market.”

“After winning the Trophy for the World’s Best Gamay, our turnover increased by 70% for a period of several months. Consumers were excited about our wine, of course, but we also felt real enthusiasm on the part of the wine merchants, restaurant owners and other professionals who contacted us. This Trophy benefitted the entire Coteaux du Lyonnais PDO, and also brought recognition to the organic farming (AB) label.”
