It has been postponed due to events related to the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Europe and worldwide, along with travel restrictions resulting from this health emergency. The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is an international event where nearly 500 people come together over several days, and we could not put our judges’ and staff’s health at risk.

Provided the situation improves, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will be held in Brno, in the Czech Republic from 26 to 28 June 2020.

The tasting sessions will be organised with the same professionalism and high standards as every other year. A panel of professional tasters will judge the wines to the best of their abilities in a way that respects the work of the producers.

The results will be published on Monday 6 July on the website www.concoursmondial.com.

Because of the difficulties involved in shipping entries, the date for registering and shipping wines has been extended until 30 April 2020. It is important to contact the relevant delivery platform for your country, especially if you want to drop off your samples in person.

The date for registering and shipping the wines has been extended until April 30, 2020. It is important to contact the relevant delivery platform for your country.

The wines you have already sent us will be stored in ideal conditions. Nevertheless, if you have sent us tank samples or if you wish to send other samples of wines you have already entered, we are in a position to replace them so that our panel of judges can taste them.
