Verallia Portugal sponsors the 2012 Brussels World Competition

One of the biggest wine events in the world took place this year in Guimarães, Portugal.

The 2012 Brussels World Competition, sponsored by Verallia Portugal, was held in May and gathered 320 wine tasters/judges of 40 different nationalities along with 100 international journalists. The media coverage resulted in more than 500 reports and published articles about this event that presented 8,397 wines and spirits from 52 countries. Portugal was well-recognized at the event, winning 272 medals.

The Brussels World Competition is unlike any other. To open more than 8,000 bottles from around the whole world in three days for nearly 320 international wine tasters is a unique event. Serving as a true test of the state of the industry, it provides an immediate and annual snapshot of the international winemaking industry, detecting trends and confirming the changes.
