The competition is a member of The World Federation of Major International Wine and Spirits Competitions VINOFED. It will be organized in accordance with these Statutes under the patronage of the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV).
.
The Danube Wine Challenge’s main focus is wines from the Danube basin - uniting producers that share historical, cultural, winemaking and gastronomic traditions.
The competition also welcomes wines from all wine regions - representing a unique opportunity to compare international wines characterised by specific soil and climatic conditions, as well as varying approaches to grape growing and winemaking.

Apart from silver, gold and double gold medals, the wines may be awarded additional trophies, as for instance: Prix VINOFED (in 4 categories: best dry still white, best dry still rosé and best dry still red wine, best brut sparkling wine), Best Blaufränkisch (dry red wine), Best Grüner Veltliner (dry white wine), among others.

The remarkable feature of this competition is the introduction of the recently recognized category of white wines with maceration (Orange wines).

The results will be published on our website www.danubewine.sk and shared on social networks and via our media partners on 13 June 2022.
