During the contest were awarded Purcari wines from all segments, including Sapiens and Nocturne, two new series of wines, recently launched in the international e-commerce network and HORECA.

The results were sent to each of the participants by email and, according to the conclusions of the professional jury, consisting of oenologists, wine producers and traders, sommeliers and expert journalists, five wines of Purcari won gold medals: Cuvee de Purcari Alb Brut, Cuvee de Purcari Extra Brut, as well as the sparkling Cuvee de Purcari made from the local grape variety Feteasca Alba, which is awarded gold already 2 years in a row. Two other gold-winning Purcari wines are Malbec de Purcari 2018 (Limited Edition) and Sauvignon Blanc de Purcari 2020 (1827 series). In addition to the gold medal, the sparkling Cuvee de Purcari Alb Brut was also awarded the title "Best of Show White" this year, being the most appreciated wine of all white wines from the Republic of Moldova. Thus, Purcari Winery was awarded the title "Best Producer from Moldova", with the highest rated wines of all Moldovan producers.

Eugen Comendant, COO Purcari Wineries Group: “It is a pleasure to start the year with such good news and hope we will get even better achievements by the end of the year. We are proud of these results and thank the team and consumers for their support and trust.”
