Wine World Cup, a Gran Vinitaly Special Award, Goes to Golan Heights Winery

It is the first time that the Gran Vinitaly Special Award has been assigned by the jury to an Israeli wine-maker. The “Wine World Cup” goes to Golan Heights Winery based in Katztrin (Israel). The 2011 edition of the International Wine Competition rewarded the Golan Heights Winery – a relatively young reality founded in 1983 at Katzrin (Israel). The award is made to the producer achieving the best result calculated as the sum of the highest scores for two wines taking medals in different categories. Golan Heights Winery had already taken important Vinitaly awards in previous editions of the International Wine Competition (with Grand Gold Medals in 2004 and 2006).
