Wines of Ukrainian brand 46 Parallel awarded with gold and silver at prestigious international competition

The 46 Parallel wines were awarded gold and silver medals at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles international competition and recognized as one of the best among 10,000 wines from 50 countries.

46 Parallel Wine Group is the only Ukrainian company that won gold in the blind tastings of one of the most prestigious contests, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, which took place in Luxemburg on June 17-27. This is a success not only for the company, which in a year and a half of its existence has received 50 medals at international and Ukrainian competitions, but also for the entire wine industry of Ukraine. With their victory, the winemakers have once again confirmed: domestic wines deserve to be on the same list with the best wines in the world, as well as become the country's hallmark on the international arena.

Recognition of the experts at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2021 was awarded to the wines from the author's collection Grand Admiral and El Capitan.

The gold of the competition was awarded to the proprietor's premium vintage dry red wine Grand Admiral Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon.

The silver in Luxembourg was awarded to the vintage dry red wine Grand Admiral Merlot. This wine conquered experts from all over the world and received six awards from Ukrainian and international competitions, and also received positive reviews from the uncompromising consultant to Her Majesty The Queen of Great Britain, Jancis Robinson.

The silver medal of Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2021 in the legacy of 46 Parallel Wine Group was brought by the sparkling wine El Capitan Brut from the exquisite collection of light premium wines El Capitan.

All wines that are submitted to the competition go through several stages of selection and thorough examination. This year, they were assessed by 60 commissions of tasters - a total of 250 world-class professionals with tremendous experience of participating in blind tastings.

"We are proud that our wines are included in the list of the best wines in the world. The medals of the competition and the recognition of experts who noted the exceptional quality of our wines not only give an objective and impartial expert assessment, but also inspire us to the creation of premium wines, which will open Ukraine to the world," Anna Gorkun, CEO and founder of 46 Parallel Wine Group, says.


Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is one of the most prestigious international wine competitions that brings together the key industry players from all over the world, and wine producers from the four continents listen to its experts. The most prestigious awards are given here. And all for the sake of one thing - striving for high quality. Thanks to this, the competition has earned a reputation as the most professional and has long become a consumer's guide in the world of high-quality winemaking. The first wine "world championship" Concours Mondial de Bruxelles was held in 1994. Then, in just two months, 869 brands from 29 countries were collected at a tasting in Bruges. But despite its original Brussels origin, since 2006, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has been held in various wine regions in Europe in an outreach format.
