Sparkling Wines: Italy Tops the World’s Podium

Up to 71 gold medals in the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2019. Ferrari (16 medals) and Rotari-Mezzacorona (9) triumph. Ferrari is once again the ‘Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year’

When it comes to sparkling wines, Italy beats France. Or, to put it more bluntly, Trentodoc beats Champagne. Cantine Ferrari di Trento has been named for the third time in its history ‘Sparkling wine producer of the year’ within the Champagne & Sparkling wine world championships 2019 (Cswwc), the leading international competition for ‘bubbles’ wines.

We are very proud of this title – comments Matteo Lunelli, president of Cantine Ferrari as it once again shows how Trentino, thanks to its mountain viticulture, is a territory with a unique and extraordinary vocation to create excellent sparkling wines. It is no coincidence that Trentodoc is the denomination with the highest number of medals in this competition.”

ITALY OVERTAKING FRANCE

Moreover, for the first time since the beginning of the competition Italy has overtaken France as for number of medals. The Trentino based winery alone received 15 gold medals for its Trentodoc, including Ferrari Brut and Ferrari Maximum, winning the nomination to the most prestigious trophy – the Producer of the Year title – over the Maison de Champagne Louis Roederer.

In addition to being named ‘Sparkling wine producer of the year’ already in 2015 and 2017, Ferrari won the title of ‘World champion sparkling wine outside Champagne’ thanks to its Ferrari Perlé 2007 in 2014 and, in 2016, that of ‘Blanc de Blancs’ world champion with the Ferrari Brut. The official award ceremonies for the title of Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year will take place on November 4 in London. Bubbles are the driving force behind world demand for wine, as beside France and Italy, 16 gold medal were awarded to wines coming from England, 9 from Australia and 8 from the USA .
