The National Syngenta Wine Competition was organized for the twentieth time, and this year a total of 501 entries were received from the region of Tokaj to Sopron. At the award ceremony of the jubilee competition, one bottle of wine each from the competitors were received to test by the jury.

The National Syngenta Wine Competition is also an important event for the wine industry. After a forced break of two years, the large-scale competition was organized again. A total of 501 entries were received from all wine regions of the country for the jubilee wine competition. The judges of this year’s wine competition rated 262 white wines, 166 red wines, 53 rosé wines, 10 champagnes, 8 sparkling wines and two sillers. 216 entries were received from the 2022 vintage.

The wines of the 2022 vintage are definitely promising, even though there was a lot of uncertainty about the success of the cultivation due to the severe drought. In the case of the fragrant grape varieties – Irsai Olivér – Cserszegi spicy, muscot 2022 was a particularly good vintage, and the blue grapes also produced quality crops in many places. The 28 gold medals also indicate that, despite the difficulties, the wines of the vintage represent quality. Together with the “competitors” from previous vintages, they formed an extremely balanced and strong field at the jubilee wine competition, therefore the jury members did not have an easy task at all.
