The Chairman's Trophy, one of the four highest distinctions of The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championship (CSWWC), the title of National Champion of Romania, and four Best in Class awards. These are this years’ awards which Carassia sparkling wines have earned in London.
Like every year, the wines are tasted by origin and style and scored by each judge at the same time, then all gold medals are re-tasted to get the Best in Class awards. These then go forward for the Regional Champion and then National Champion titles. All Best in Class go forward for the World Champion by style (six categories) and finally for The Supreme World Champion and selected trophies. These special awards were announced last week on 4 consecutive days in a Virtual Award Ceremony.
