"The quality is increasing every year. It's incredible to see countries like Bolivia receive a ‘Gran Oro'. That surprised me a lot because it is an excellent wine. Also Brazilian wines did a good job, and obviously the Chinese wines. Seeing the Chinese wines in the contest is something important for us as a contest."
Experts said that the Catad'Or Wine Awards is a barometer of production trends, and an evaluator qualified by the standards of the International Organization of Vine and Wine.
