This year of the Decanter World Wine Awards turned into a big Sonberk's ride. We won one of the two platinum medals awarded to Czech wines, one of four Czech gold and one silver and two bronze medals. The combination of platinum and gold makes us the most successful domestic producer in this competition this year. Platinum and 97 points belong to the Riesling Noble Rot, and gold and 95 points to the Riesling 2017 VOC.

"For us, this is great news, mainly in the sense that our wine is competitive even in comparison with the best in the world," says our marketing director Dáša Fialová.

The big news is also because the Riesling Noble Rot is not available every season. During the entire history of Sonberk, the winemaker, Olda Drápal, could only create it three times so far. Whether there will be grapes on, it depends on the climatic conditions. "These are grapes with the noble mould Botrytis cinerea. We routinely defend ourselves from botrytis during the year. But when it falls in the final maturation, it causes cracking of the skins and a little drying out, so a higher concentration of sugar, acids, and other substances inside," Olda described what makes the raw material for this wine special.

We now have the last thousand bottles of platinum wine. Because we want it to be tasted, especially after the announcement of the competition results, by as many people as possible who come to us, it will now be sold at the competitive price. It should ensure that it does not disappear so quickly.
