Participate in the organic wine competition
The Challenge Millésime BIO 2023 contest will take place in Montpellier on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 January 2023.
Prerequisites for participation :
- We remind you that this competition is open to organic wines and grape wines certified in accordance with the production method of organic farming in accordance with the European regulations in force. In-conversion wines are not accepted.
- Only wines packaged and ready to be marketed are allowed. For wines in vats, we do not accept "brut" wines in the sense that they must be as close as possible to the "prêt mise" conditions and represent the final blend of the wine that will be packaged. It is in your interest to present wines in optimal tasting conditions.
- The wines must come from a homogeneous batch available for sale, with quantities greater than or equal to 1000 litres for red, white and rosé still and sparkling wines and 100 litres for liqueur wines, natural sweet wines, orange wines and straw wines. The wines must come from a clearly identified batch.
We strongly advise you to read the rules of the competition as well as the terms and conditions of participation listed on this page, as no refunds will be made after receipt of your application. Thank you for your understanding.
