Brussels, June 2020

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to show fairly encouraging signs of improvement across Europe, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has confirmed that it will go ahead in Brno from 4 to 6 September 2020.

As borders within Europe are set to gradually open across the region from 15 June, the competition’s organisers are confident that they are in a position to organise the tasting sessions in the best possible conditions. The team’s mission now is to arrange for the entries and panel members to travel to Brno, in Southern Moravia. The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles’ partners in the country – the South Moravia Region, the National Wine Centre and the Wine Fund – are doing everything in their power to ensure this prestigious event is a success.

“We will of course implement strict hygiene rules to ensure the tastings run smoothly and special efforts will be made to secure media coverage for the event and widespread exposure for the results”, says Thomas Costenoble, director of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.

French and foreign producers, who have stressed the significance of the competition for the wine industry, have demonstrated overwhelming trust in the event through numerous messages of support, a vote of confidence which is also reflected in the large number of entries (in excess of 8,000!).
