The two categories of wines have more and more followers among the public, so the medals obtained are very important. We can consider them as a landmark for wine consumers who are in front of the wine shelf on the store and don't know what to choose. If the wines have medals, it means that those wines have passed through the glasses of several people with wine education and experience who chose to give them those medals. One more reason for those wines to find their place on your table!

Only part of the wines who entered in the competition received medals, there being a self-imposed limit by the organizer: only one third of the wines entered in the competition could receive medals. The wines that received medals are:
