They adorn many a bottleneck, the sought-after bronze, silver or gold medals. The wines with these seals promise highest quality and harmony. The wines are tested and judged by a qualified committee in a covered testing session.
Every year the wine-growers hand in their best wines to let test and judge the quality by a strict examination committee. The handed-in wines have, depending on the quality, the chance to be honoured with one of the sought-after gold, silver or bronze medals. The criterions are put high. Testing sessions for regional awards take place twice a year in the Saale-Unstrut wine-growing area. A medal in this examination is precondition for taking part in the national competition, the Bundesweinprämierung. The great honour for the wine-growing estates of the awarded wine is taking place in an appropriate ceremony.
