The World’s Leading Sparkling Wine Experts Acknowledge Trentodoc as Italy’s Finest Producer of Classic Method Bubbles

The medals, awarded by wine writer and top critic, Tom Stevenson, confirm the high quality of the sparkling wine houses of Trentino. Leading Italy with the most awards, Trentodoc received 52 medals, 20 gold and 32 silver, in the 2020 edition of the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC), the prestigious international wine competition dedicated solely to sparkling wines. This year wines from over 30 countries were reviewed, including over 1,000 labels.

For this first time in the history of the competition, created and presided by leading wine critic Tom Stevenson, Italy and France tie for the number of gold medals, 47 each; an important result that further acknowledges the quality of Italian sparkling wines. “The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championship and Tom Stevenson are the point of reference in our sector for sparkling wines houses across the globe, and this kind of wonderful recognition on its behalf represents great satisfaction and pride for all our producers, and further pushes us in the ongoing venture of quality improvement. The growing reputation of Trentodoc in the Italian and international landscape of sparkling wine is of important value for the whole region of Trentino,” comments Enrico Zanoni, President of the Istituto Trento Doc.

“Trentodoc never disappoints. It is undoubtedly among the three best regions in the world in the production of sparkling wine,” states Tom Stevenson, according to whom the altitude and the mountain climate are great resources for Trentodoc; 70% of the Trentino area is located above 3,200 feet above sea level, 20% above 6,500 feet, and a total of 94 mountain tops which peak close to 10,000 feet. The land dedicated to the vineyards, which in some cases arrive close to 3,000 feet above sea level, are areas of land taken from the mountain, where the average vineyard is very fragmented and the cost of the terrain is high.

It is the mountains, once again, that influence the climate and the life in the vineyards even in the lower areas of Trentino, with large temperature variations between day and night, essential in allowing grapes to reach the optimal degree of acidity for production for the classic method. The uniqueness of the area is also due to the influence of Lake Garda to the south, which provides winds that refresh the air while maintaining the wholesomeness of the grapes.

About Trentodoc: Founded in 1984, the Istituto Trentodoc promotes and safeguards the wines of Trentodoc, a denomination that now represents 57 sparkling wine producers from the Trentino region in northern Italy. Giulio Ferrari first began producing sparkling wine there in 1902 after visiting the Champagne region of France. The Trentodoc denomination was established in 1993 and is the first Italian DOC to produce only Classic Method sparkling wines. In 2007, the collective Trentodoc trademark was created, allowing the sparkling wines of Trentino designated as Trento D.O.C. to use it, thereby relaying the origin, connection with the territory, and excellence of Italy’s unique sparkling wine.
