Caraccioli Cellars is proud to announce the award of two gold medals and one silver in the first “Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.” With over 650 entries from 16 different countries and only 7 total medals awarded domestically, (4 gold and 3 silver), the prestigious and selective process recognized Caraccioli Cellars 2006 and 2007 Brut Rosé with gold medals while the Caraccioli Cellars, 2007 Brut Cuvée was awarded a silver medal.
Caraccioli Cellars Brut Rose
This is the first wine competition to be judged exclusively by Champagne and sparkling wine specialists and the only global competition in which every judge agrees all the medals awarded. The combination of these two unique attributes ensures an unprecedented level of consistency in the medalling process in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.
Of the 650 entries only gold medal wines compete for trophies where the Caraccioli Cellars, 2006 and 2007 Brut Rosé will both be contending for several potential titles. All those wines awarded a Gold medal are retasted side-by-side to select the World Champion Winners including World Champion American Sparkling Wine, and World Champion Vintage Rosé; these results will be announced in September.
“This is a great honor for Caraccioli Cellars because of the strict judging process as well as the quantity and quality of the other entrants in contention for the titles.” states Scott Caraccioli, VP of Marketing, “It is exciting as we are shoulder to shoulder with the greatest and well known sparkling and Champagne producers such as Dom Pérignon and Louis Roederer’s Cristal.”
