The best wine in each main category (with at least 10 samples) is awarded the Champion title by the judges of the wine competition via selecting through parallel blind tasting from at most 5-5 gold medalist wines that have reached the highest score in the first round of tasting within the category.
Best of Country
If at least 10 samples are entered from a foreign country, then the gold-medal-winning wine with the highest score will receive this special award.
Best Hungarian Varietal Wines of VinAgora
If at least 15 samples of a given varietal are entered, then among the gold-medal-winning wines of the given varietal, the sample with the highest score receives the Best Hungarian Varietal Wine of VinAgora title, which is also specified on its certificate. Only those wines can win this award, for which technology does not override the varietal character. (For example, a Merlot rosé might win the Best Hungarian Merlot award but a sparkling wine made of Pinot Noir cannot compete for the Best Hungarian Pinot Noir award.)
