It’s now official – the organisers of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, in conjunction with their partners and the Czech authorities, have decided to postpone the competition until 26 to 28 June 2020.

In light of events related to the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Europe and across the globe, along with travel restrictions resulting from this health emergency, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has been postponed to a later date. The decision aims to guarantee the tastings will run smoothly and that a responsible approach is taken to travel restrictions in a bid to limit the spread of the virus.

Consequently, and on the proviso that the situation improves, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will be held in Brno from 26 to 28 June 2020.

“This is obviously a difficult decision to make, but the health of our judges and staff depends upon it. The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is an international event where nearly 500 people come together over several days, and we could not put those people at risk”. Baudouin Havaux, Chairman of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles

Due to the difficulties involved in shipping samples, the date for registering and shipping the wines has been extended until 30 April 2020. Producers are also invited to visit our website where they will find answers to all their questions.  (FAQ)

 

About the competition:

The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is an international competition where over 9,000 wines are entered by producers and judged by a panel of experts. Our seasoned judges from across the globe taste wines with a single-minded objective, and that is to identify wines of irreproachable quality, without being influenced by the label or an appellation’s prestige. The competition is one of the most important international events of its kind.
