18 Belgian wines receive golden medal

18 different Belgian wines were granted a golden medal at the 15th edition of the Belgian Wine Festival in Bruges, as the Belgian wine sector is booming.

Various sommeliers tasted no fewer than 180 different wines from 46 different producers. 18 wines received a golden medal, with 16 taking a silver medal and 18 bronze. 

The sommeliers found that "the quality of Belgian wines in general is improving". The Belgian wine sector is booming: while 180 wines were tasted at this 15th edition, this number was only 21 at the first edition in 2005. All award-winning wines will be presented at a special wine event in the Horeca Expo Gent, on Sunday 17 November.
