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.
