La Riva dei Frati wins Silver/Bronze for Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze/Valdobbiadene Superiore Docg Extra Dry/ Prosecco Doc Treviso Brut in the 2016 International Wine and Spirit Competition La Riva dei Frati are delighted to announce that they have won a Silver and Bronze award in the 2016 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) for Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze (Silver) and Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg Extra Dry (Bronze) and Prosecco Doc Treviso Brut (Bronze).
Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world.
The awards given by the competition are believed to be among some of the highest honours in the industry. Judging for the Competition is unique in that it has two stages; first, the products are tasted blind by expert panels, selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. Products which receive the top medals are then subject to technical analysis before results are released; this crucial stage ensures winners receive complete validation.
