„Nehéz, ám nagyon kellemes volt az idei VinAgorán bírálni: rengeteg kiváló bor közül kellett a legjobbakat kiválasztani. Szinte zavarba ejtő volt a sok hibátlan, egyedi bor, ilyen sorozattal még nem találkoztam, pedig bíráltam már párszor.” - mondta az egyik magyar zsűritag.

It was not easy to be a judge at VinAgora in 2015. Many outstanding wines competed for the best results this year. Due to the rules of the competition only 30% of the competing wines can get medals, thus the minimum scores for the medals had to be raised.
There were 549 wines from 18 countries competing on VinAgora International Wine Competition 2015, held in Budapest between June 11-14. Australia, Brazil, France, Lebanon, Peru, Morocco, Taiwan, Germany, Romania, Spain and Uruguay were also on the list of countries.
