Sauvignon Selection by CMB in STEIERMARK/STYRIA

 

The Concours Mondial du Sauvignon becomes Sauvignon Selection by CMB.
April 18th to 20th, 2024, the international Sauvignon Blanc competition Sauvignon Selection by CMB will take place in Steiermark/Styria.

Winemakers from Steiermark/Styria have been demonstrating their skills for years at the largest international Sauvignon competition, which is also one of the most influential white wine competitions in the world. Thus, Steiermark/Styria is establishing itself as an important growing region for first-class Sauvignon. As a supporting program around the blind tasting of over 1,000 Sauvignon Blancs, the 60 international experts will get to know the terroir, wines and winegrowers of Steiermark/Styria.

The Sauvignon Selection by CMB is an international wine competition whose goal is to showcase the diversity of Sauvignon Blanc. The event takes place annually in spring in a selected wine region. In 2018, Steiermark/Styria was already the host country, and the tasting took place in the provincial capital of Graz.

In 2024, the jury members will blind taste Sauvignon Blancs from all over the world right in the middle of the STEIERMARK wine region, internationally known as Styria. The competition will take place at Bildungszentrum für Obst- und Weinbau Silberberg – Landesgut Silberberg in Leibnitz, the regional winemaking school. The supporting program will take participants to the three wine-growing regions of Südsteiermark, Vulkanland Steiermark and Weststeiermark. Steiermark/Styria, as the most mountainous wine-growing region of Austria and with an illyrian climate offers optimal conditions for fragrant, juicy Sauvignon Blancs. In addition to excellent wines, there are many more reasons to visit the Green Heart of Austria: the green, lush landscape, winegrowers who warmly welcome their guests to their family-run wineries and typical winery restaurants called Buschenschanken, the rattling Klapotetz, the landmarks of the region and much more.
